Windows NT 3.5 is the second release of the Microsoft Windows NT operating system. It was released on September 21 1994.

One of the primary goals during Windows NT 3.5's development was to increase the speed of the operating system; as a result, the project was given the codename "Daytona" in reference to the Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida. [cite book

quote = The first release of Windows NT was larger and slower than expected, so the next major push was a project called Daytona, named after the speedway in Florida. The main goals for this release were to reduce the size of the system, increase the speed of the system, and, of course, to make it more reliable.

Overview

This is the first Windows NT to adopt the names "Windows NT Workstation" and "Windows NT Server" for its editions. The editions of the previous Windows NT release, Windows NT 3.1, were named "Windows NT" and "Windows NT Advanced Server".

New features in Windows NT 3.5 include the new startup screen. The interface was updated to be consistent with the "Windows for Workgroups 3.xx". It also upgraded Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) support from version 1.0 to version 2.0 and is more efficient - performance is higher and it requires less memory than Windows NT 3.1.

In July 1995, Windows NT 3.5 with Service Pack 3 was rated by the National Security Agency as complying with TCSEC C2 criteria.cite web
