Windows 2000 and Virtual PC

Surprised to find that Windows Update still works with Windows 2000. Evidently Microsoft "Extended Support" is good through July, 2010. Also surprised to see that Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 "add-ins" support Windows 2000, including mapping drives to the local hard drive.

This means that those who need to test software compatibility with Windows 2000 should create a fully patched virtual hard drive image under Virtual PC sometime prior to July, 2010 when Windows Update goes down for Windows 2000.
