Downloading Windows 2000 Safe and Effective?

Is Downloading Windows 2000 Safe and Effective? How does it help and is it safe to download? What exactly does it do?

Microsoft Windows 2000? That's an operating system even older than Windows XP, which was retired in April 2014. Neither 2000, nor it's successor XP, is safe to use anymore.

like alpha said above it's (Windows 2000) not safe to use.

if you want to download a OS just get Windows 7 and use Windows Loader v2.2.2 (which activates it) and your golden ;)

p.s. i have used Windows 2k in the past as that was the first OS i installed that was stable (huge improvement over Windows 98/ME and older which where not stable and you had to reboot the PC fairly often as after hours of use they generally get worse and worse unlike Windows 2k/XP and newer which you can leave running for weeks (probably months) on end without a need for a reboot) but not too long after that Windows XP became the standard.

Microsoft stopped supporting 2000 completely in the summer of 2010. It's even more vulnerable than XP at this point, and is by all means considered Abandonware.

You're much, much better off trying/sticking with Windows 7; the 32-bit version actually functions on only 1GB of RAM.

personally i think 2GB is about the minimum for Windows 7 especially if you plan on running software, which we all do. even 2GB will impede performance but that i would say is functional.

1GB would be functional/good for XP but not Windows 7. hell, especially considering how much RAM web browsers burn up nowadays.

if you are low on RAM i would recommend Firefox since that don't burn up as much RAM as the RAM hungry Google Chrome does.

Believe it or not, I'm actually running Windows 7 Home Premium (32-bit) on a Compaq Presario V2000, from 2005, with 1GB of RAM. Nothing wrong with adding more RAM, though, if you need to. I plan to soon.

As far as internet surfing and media use is concerned, it's fine. Fortunately, it's not my main laptop.
