Extended Support for Windows 2000 Server will end on July 13, 2010. At this time, Windows 2000 Server will no longer be publicly supported. You will be able to continue using Self-Help Online Support.
Also on July 13, 2010, Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2003 R2 (at a supported service pack level) will move from Mainstream Support to Extended Support. That means Microsoft will continue to provide security updates and paid support and customers will continue to have access to all security updates and Self-Help Online Support options. Non-security hot fixes developed during the Extended Support phase will be provided only to customers who enroll in Extended Hotfix Support.
Microsoft will not have a SP3 release for Windows Server 2003.
