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.

From the MS faq
http://www.microsoft.../rollupfaq.mspx

"...Windows 2000 systems with SP4
deployed will be 'up to date' from a life–cycle policy perspective until
the end of life (EOL) date of Windows 2000. The EOL date will be no
sooner than January 1, 2010. "

uh guys, I have checked this MS support page and Extended Support for Win2000 Pro Edition will end
on July 13, 2010:
http://support.micro...ecycle/?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.
