Microsoft To End Support For Windows 2000, XP
Consumers and businesses still using Windows 2000 (desktop and server) and Windows XP SP2 will see the end of Microsoft’s official tech support on July 13, 2010. Microsoft will withdraw support which means that Windows XP users can extend support at no cost by upgrading to SP3, but Windows 2000 users have no such option. So now is the right time to ditch the old-school OS for a spiffier Windows 7.
