micrsoft support for windows 2000 Pro

Work is doing a 5 IT strategy plan. I do realise that you can't really do that in IT as microsoft will probably be on next version after longhorn by then.

My question is - bearing in mind that microsoft are now supporting 98se until 2006 (ie 8 years from start)- is it reasonable to presume that they'll support 2000 Pro until 2008.

Could you let me know your opionions or if you have a link to anything that gives a supported until date.

Many thanks

I think the MS support schema is 5 years of full support from date of release followed by 2 years of limited support.

Quote from a spokesperson

"As a company Microsoft is committed to the current schema of five plus two years of assisted support...we are likely to keep to that schedule".
