What will be after July 2010

PostPosted by adun » Tue Jan 05, 2010 11:04 pm

On July the 13, 2010 the extendet support for Windows 2000 and Windows 2000 Server will end. Will that mean that I cant longer use Windows 2000 in case of danger get infectet with viruses or other things. Or is it save to continue using windows 2000 ?

Let us first think about a eggshell:

now imagine Windows 2000 inside (the yellow and white stuff) and the firewall and anti-virus-adware software protecting the soft-ware with the hard shell.

I'd add to OldBoy2k speech that I'm not updated beyond SP4, some patches here and there and the kernel update recommended here, nothing else.

Most of the actual updates are security (?) critical (?) updates... If you know how to protect your machine and what to run and what not to run, even if you use Windows 95, you are safe without them.

I'll announce security patch for Windows 2000 after July ,13th on my blog. :)
I descript two news which relate to Windows 2000 everyday.

I think at least Windows 2000 security patches are effective till Aug ,10th.
