Many companies here uses win 2000 even today.
2000 was a pretty solid OS...
Its a nice OS but then the problem is that they dont move forward with the technology. Lets hope that most of the companies worldwide make this decision to switch to Win7.

We still use XP and IE6!! However they are swapping the 1000s to PCs and laptops over to Win7. Some software we use will not play ball with it so certain stations will remain XP but not the productivity offices ones! We get new hard ware every 3 years. I am currently using a Dell, dual core and 3gig Ram plugged into a docking station, monitor and keyboard.

Likely so...but I doubt they will have anymore after that

Once 7 gets a SP they will try and kill off Vista for good

My school uses both XP and Windows 2000. This would not be too bad, except that the internet is SLOW and their hardware is at least 5 years old.....

Luckily my computers (work and home) run Vista/Seven and are all less than 2 years old.
