  1. I love Win2k.

    Is there a memorial service or something on 13 Jul?
    .-= DK´s last blog ..Sea of love =-.

  2. Do you really want a memorial service for Windows Server 2000? I think Windows XP vanilla, SP1, SP2 will be good. Actually, when XP is officially dead, that will be a great day.

    With that, IE6 is officially off the table, if you realise.

    Tech65 Social Memorial Service for Windows XP and IE6. Sounds good?

  3. XP (SP3) will be officially supported by Microsoft until 2014 (see http://support.microsoft.com/gp/lifean31). Plenty of time to wait until Windows 9 is released. Then all I have to do is buy a new computer with the new OS and get new applications. Pay once instead of over and over. Problem solved.

    Oh, and as a side point, where I work people are half on IE6, some on IE7 and a few are testing IE8. When the recent DST patch from Microsoft came out and was applied to these workstations, only those running IE6 did not experience printing and web issues directly related to the patch (when the patch was removed, things started working again). Peculiar, eh?
