    Hey all,

    Just wondering if Win2000 is still being supported. If so, when does it end.

    Thanks,

    Heeter

    Only in my pants :cool:

    Official supported ended a little after windows XP was released.

    There may be unofficial support on-going.

    They still release security patches for 2000, I don't think its support has ended.

    Yeah, I think they only release critical patches....nothing to add new functionality though.

    Windows 2000 is in the extended support phase through June, 2010 (at least), meaning security hotfixes only and paid support.
