    I have, believe it or not, in a production environment, for a VERY large corporation, Windows XP machines still running. Many windows 2003 servers and even a 100% production database running on SQL 2000. I inherited this mess, and am working to remedy it all, but its slow. We have had no "outbreaks" or virus or malware running rampant on the network due to these "unsupported" systems.

    YMMV.
    That’s reassuring. Been sweating out the end of server 2008R2.
    Maybe I shouldn’t worry if real corporations are still running server 2003

    But that OS sucked since it wouldn’t handle much ram. The main reason I upgraded

    This situation was clear mismanagement and poor planning. I was sold on a job that wasn't. Am doing what I can, but looking for an out if it comes along. It's just so much nonsense and old manufacturing mentality. Biggest issue I have is no "flex" time. I work late a lot and in most IT situations there's a give and take. This place is still of the thought that if you aren't physically there you can't possibly be being productive.
