RIP Windows 2000 Mainstream Support

Today is the day, as foretold by the Product Lifecycle Dates page over at Microsoft that primary support for Windows 2000 ends.

What does this mean for those of us still running 2k? According to an IE Blog entry:

Microsoft will not accept requests for warranty support, design changes, or new features during the Extended support phase.

They will still keep 2K up to date with security patches until this date in 2010, however no further usability or application enhancements will be made to the platform, you know, things like Indigo, Avalon, IE7, all the new good stuff.

Maybe I should take this as a hint to upgrade to Windows XP, after all, Battlefield 2 announces when you attempt to install it that the game has only been tested under Windows XP.

Will I upgrade? Na, maybe when Longhorn comes out
