There are a lot of legacy reasons for running Windows 2000.  We have run into 
custom grown apps that have relied on some os level stuff that didn't play well

alternative at the time for us).

BTW, the OS will still be maintained through 2010 (according to M$).  Also, we 
have received support for NT as late as 2005 at the last company I worked for.

Really! I thought it fell off the primary support list several years ago and went to "extended", "we-ll fix it if you give us extra money" support. You can't get licenses from Microsoft for it anymore, according to their own website.

Where is your cite of the 2010 support date? I assume by that you mean the extended support?
