Do you still use Windows 2000 on your computers at/for work or home?

Until last week I used Win2K on my primary home machine. I got a new machine and it had XP on it. I only run Win2K in virtual machines at the office, because most people are still running Win2K there and I need to help them out.

Still on W2K for my main machine. Waiting for all you early adopters to get the bugs worked out of XP before I make the switch.

LOL. My main machine is WindowsME, with very few problems over the last 6 years. Got a couple of XP backups just in case.
(I use computers like I use my cars. Drive them into the ground.)

My employer has not moved to Windows XP, so even brand new machines are reinstalled with Windows 2000. There is a significant investment in custom-built internal applications which are known to work in W2K, so I can understand their reluctance to move to XP or Vista unless/until they are forced to by MS.

At home I have a VMWare image running Windows 2000 to check my sites with IE, if that counts. I suspect I'll have to upgrade when IE7 comes out if that won't work with 2000. (Other than that I don't run Windows at all).

Windows 2000 is scheduled to have extended support until July 13, 2010. That means Microsoft will keep making security updates available for Win2K until then.

Some interesting reading here: Microsoft Support Lifecycle [support.microsoft.com]

NT4 sp6a + good firewall rules

support is a non-issue since everything just works.
