On July 13, 2010, the Extended Support phase for all editions of Windows 2000 Server and Windows 2000 Professional (...) will end.
What does "End-of-Support" mean for Windows 2000?
At the end of the Extended Support phase for Windows 2000, customers will not have access to the following:
* New security updates
* Non-security hotfixes
Unsupported products or service packs pose a significant risk to your computerís security. Therefore, Microsoft advises customers to migrate to the latest supported service pack and/or product prior to the end of support.
There a still a couple of machines at my work which run Windows 2000. It's quite impressive that there was still support for a product first released in 1999!
