Readers Wrestle With Windows 2000 Transition

InformationWeek readers sound off on Microsoft's product support policies relating to Windows 2000.

Our recent analysis of Microsoft's support for Windows 2000 -- and how a decreasing level of support could push customers to new Windows versions -- strikes a chord with readers.

Some accept the support cutbacks, which are part of a well-defined Microsoft policy, as the normal course of IT management. Others say a lack of stability in the platforms that followed Windows 2000 has convinced them have to explore alternatives -- or that they've already left Microsoft over these and related issues.
