Though it's in extended support, you get critical and security updates without 
having to pay additional money.

I'm not trying to be cynical or to start a flame war, I'm just providing 
accurate advice.  Do I like running windows 2000 at this point in the game? No! 
But sometimes you have to.

I still have VM's running very legacy software based on NT.  Is that smart? 
Hell no.  But for a variety of reasons it's a must.

So, back to the original statement.  He can install 2000 under VM and still get 
security updates until 2010 (according to the link I included).  This is a true 
statement.  Anything else is opinion.
