How much difference is there between Windows 2000 and Windows NT 4.0?

 Even though Windows 2000 is built on the Windows NT architecture, Microsoft has added many new features (Plug and Play, USB support, Recovery Console, IntelliMirror, Group Policy, Active Directory, integration of IIS and Terminal Services)  and redesigned many of the management tools (MMC, Disk Administration, ADSI). If you are already familiar with Windows NT, you'll have an easier time getting used to Windows 2000 but there is still a lot to learn.

The main different in 2000 is Active directory.. What is active directory? Microsoft refers to Active Directory as the way to "provide a consistent way to name, describe, locate, access, manage, and secure information about resources" on a Windows 2000 network.
