Windows NT 5.0 is a massive release, with significant new operating system and network functionality being added to many areas of the system. It is not, however, a rewrite-many aspects of the kernel system architecture remain the same or are being extended.

The companion articles describe major new extentions to the NT file system and the Microsoft Clustering Service
