Windows 2000 Professional: Advanced security?

Release date: Feb. 17, 2000

Targeted at business users, Windows 2000 supported mobile computing and "simplified hardware installation by adding support for a wide variety of new Plug and Play hardware, including advanced networking and wireless products, USB devices, IEEE 1394 devices, and infrared devices," Microsoft says. Microsoft touted Windows 2000 security features at the time of release, but the rise of the Internet led to a new wave of attacks and Windows 2000 was frequently patched until Microsoft killed support for the OS in July 2010.
