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.

I loved windows 2000
not for its aestethic, but about how windows 2000 seem better intgrated overall ( even if it still had some NT4 / NT3.51 /windows 3.1 style dialog ), overall it really seemed more polished than the more modern OS.
Windows 2000 had less service to manage, less open port. Security made more sense.
Unfortunately it was not designed with multimedia abilities in mind.
However it remains for me one of the best OS sold by microsoft so far.

What are you talking about? Fewer open ports? It didn't even come with a firewall. A default Server 2008 install has a far smaller attack surface. You can break it down even farther with a core install.


Is there some luddite attachment to Win2k that I am missing?
