Windows All good things come to an end, eventually, and operating systems are no different. Microsoft has reminded the public that support for several Windows versions will end over the coming months, which could likely have significant consequences if you or your company are still running these Windows versions.

It's sad to see Windows 2000 finally put out to pasture. I can remember how impressed I was when I first installed this on my home workstation (coming from Windows 98 and NT 4.0 Workstation.) Even when Windows XP came along, I still had a soft spot for Windows 2000 as it was markedly faster on modern hardware without all the visual overhead of the Fisher-Price looking XP. And, it lacked the annoying, draconian Windows Activation "feature". Windows 2000 was the last Windows operating system I ran as my mainstream OS before making the leap to Linux permanently. All good things must come to an end.

Same here. I love Windows 7, but 2000 will always hold a place in my heart (and mind).

In fact, Window 2000 with a decent firewall and protection (AVG and Spybot) plus a modern browser (Firefox 3.6) rocks socks for work purposes.
