Ned here again. If you’ve been under a rock for the past year, here it is one more time:

Windows 2000 support ends on July 13, 2010



That is just a week from now. For more info on how to upgrade, migrate, and otherwise remove the last traces of Win2000 from your environment, make sure you head here immediately:

http://support.microsoft.com/win2000



Other major milestones on July 13th include:

  • Windows Server 2003 enters extended support
  • Windows XP SP2 (i.e. without SP3 installed) support ends
  • Windows Services for UNIX 2.0 support ends


For more info on what mainstream, extended, and end of support policies mean, make sure you review:



This is your final warning. The next time I post on this it’s to say goodbye to the venerable operating system that launched Active Directory more than a decade ago.
