Mozilla & Gecko clones Still holding on to Windows 2000, XP RTM or XP SP1? No more Firefox for you, my friend - Mozilla has just upped its minimum supported Windows version to Windows XP SP2. In addition, support for Firefox 3.6 will end April 24. Asa Dotzler presents Opera as an alternative for you crazy people still on Windows 2000, XP RTM or XP SP1.

Putting Win2K/XP on the open internet would be foolish, but appropriately firewalled the lack of OS security updates is essentially a moot point. Furthermore, you can really trim down 2000 & XP, down to ~6 processes and no inbound open ports in the case of the former, which reduces the attack profile to virtually nothing. Except for the now out-of-date web browser, of course.
