Windows 2000 moves into Extended Support after June 30th

There are two important events that will happen to the support policy for Windows 2000 after June 30th of this year.

First, support for both IE 5.01 SP3 and IE 6 SP1 on Windows 2000 SP3 will expire.
Second, Windows 2000 SP4 moves from mainstream to extended support.

The key difference between mainstream support and extended support which he thinks is most relevant to this audience is this quote from the lifecycle site: “Microsoft will not accept requests for warranty support, design changes, or new features during the Extended support phase.”
