MS will only give security fixes to Win200 if you pay HIGH prices, and won't fix it AT ALL.

Nope. Windows 2000 gets extended support until 2010.

Non-security fixes cost money.
Security fixes are free.

Look, I'm talking to you about a real case from 2 weeks ago, NOT PR like you point to me !
The fact is that MS won't fix their IP stack on Win2000, even if you want to pay. They won't even fix other bugs unless they're critical (which means none).
So stop your BS.
