Windows 2000 is officially moving to extended - read subscription - support this month. This means that after June of this year, Windows 2000 users will no longer be eligible for hotfixes and security updates unless they join Microsoft's extended support plan.
"The sky won't fall when Extended Support goes into effect," managing director of AssetMetrix Research Labs Steve O'Halloran told Information Week, "but it should be a wake-up call to companies with continued investments in Windows 2000. You've got five years to figure out how to transition, and like everything, it's going to sneak up on you if you're not careful."
