A single build of Neptune, 5111 (which still carried the branding of Windows 2000 in places), revealed early work on the activity center concept, with an updated user account interface and graphical login screen, common functions (such as recently used programs) being accessible from a customizable "Starting Places" page (which could be used as either a separate window, or a full-screen desktop replacement). Microsoft would ultimately shelve Bill Gates' 1998 promise that Windows 98 would be the final MS-DOS–based version of Windows; at the Win HEC conference on April 7, 1999, Steve Ballmer announced an updated version of Windows 98 known as Windows Millennium.

Windows XP is still very popular countries such as China, with it running on more than one in five desktop computers (and about as high in Cuba In the late 1990s, initial development of what would become Windows XP was focused on two individual products; "Odyssey", which was reportedly intended to succeed the future Windows 2000, and "Neptune", which was intended to succeed the MS-DOS–based Windows 98 with a Windows NT-based product designed for consumers.
Development of Windows XP began in the late 1990s as "Neptune", an operating system built on the Windows NT kernel which was intended specifically for mainstream consumer use—an updated version of Windows 2000 was also originally planned for the business market.

Upon its release Windows XP received generally positive reviews, with critics noting increased performance (especially in comparison to Windows ME), a more intuitive user interface, improved hardware support, and its expanded multimedia capabilities.Despite some initial concerns over the new licensing model and product activation system, Windows XP eventually proved to be popular and widely used.Windows XP was a major advance from the MS-DOS based versions of Windows in security, stability and efficiency due to its use of Windows NT underpinnings.It introduced a significantly redesigned graphical user interface and was the first version of Windows to use product activation in an effort to reduce its copyright infringement.Based on the NT 5.0 kernel in Windows 2000, Neptune primarily focused on offering a simplified, task-based interface based on a concept known internally as "activity centers".
