I knew this long now. Originally the support should have stopped by now. Only an uproar from OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturer) moved Microsoft to prolong the support. Make no mistake, they will stop it. Windows 2000 was an excellent OS in its time, but to push Windows XP, they dropped all support quick. Microsoft is about making money. If they support OS for too long they sell no new one. Use Windows 7. I use it now for over a year and is good. All newer hardware is supported (drivers) and you find features which are very useful. Not trying to sell Microsoft's products, but there are only few alternatives. Actually really only one. Mac. The new 64 bit OS Snow Leopard is work of art. Runs very fast and will run 32 bit software with no problems. Linux is not an option for web design yet. Software available is too amateurish.
