Anyone else using win 2000 not had a windows update in the last 3 months? Normally I expect a required update every 3 weeks or so, but there conspicuous by the lack of them.

Hi,

Prior to updating 2K to XP recently, I also hadn't had an update on the website for a lot longer than 3 months I think, except an occasional security update maybe.

Oddly I haven't had an XP one for a while either, but SP2 is supposed to be out later this month (but I'm not holding my breath) so maybe this would account for the lack of updates at the moment, as I expect some will be common to 2K as well.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Maybe Microsoft have fixed ALL the windows bugs and holes making Windows as reliable as other operating systems. On second thoughts maybe not Smiley
