Sorry mate, WinXP still accounts for almost 80% of systems running a Microsoft OS on earth.

Vista and 7 are still a distinct minority, when compared.

Not exactly 80%, more like 60%. While Win7/Vista accounts for about 30% right now.

But I think he was refering to us here at TPU, the enthusiasts. Most of us are using Win7/Vista now.

another critical bug unpatched:

Unpatched critical flaws
On September 8, 2009, Microsoft skipped patching two of the five security flaws that were addressed in the monthly security update, saying that patching one of the critical security flaws was "infeasible".[95] According to the Microsoft Security Bulletin MS09-048, "The architecture to properly support TCP/IP protection does not exist on Microsoft Windows 2000 systems, making it infeasible to build the fix for Microsoft Windows 2000 Service Pack 4 to eliminate the vulnerability. To do so would require re-architecting a very significant amount of the Microsoft Windows 2000 Service Pack 4 operating system, [...] there would be no assurance that applications designed to run on Microsoft Windows 2000 Service Pack 4 would continue to operate on the updated system."

There have always been issues with help and the places it will take you. The only partial fix I have known of is to use user rights in a domain to prevent issues.

People still using 2000 is more of a crime than Microsoft not patching the security flaw...

It is 10 years old at this point, anyone still running 2000 should consider themselves lucky they are even still getting security patches.

My first computer still works flawlessy. And I still use it to play those games that are troublesome to play in an os newer than win98.

Being old doesn't mean it won't work.
