End of Windows 2000

9 posts in this topic

With the end of Mainstream support, and obviously the end of USP 5 maybe its time to move on to either Linux or a newer Windows version.

M$ still releasing hotfixes. There are other ways to integrate hotfixes into Win2k SP4.

Security updates continues until 2010. This is the beginning rather than the end - W2K (with an USP) is definately the most stable Windows I have ever worked with, including XP SP2.

uh guys, I have checked this MS support page and Extended Support for Win2000 Pro Edition will end

on July 13, 2010:

http://support.microsoft.com/lifecycle/?p1=3071

same thing for all Server editions of Windows 2000.

so the EOL date mentioned in the MS Win2k rollup FAQ is no longer accurate.
