  • Due to a legal settlement involving Sun Microsystems, Windows 2000 is not officially available for download. The only places it is offered are sources with questionable intent and security.
  • Windows 2000 was the last Windows operating system to use the "boxy" grey skin by default. All later versions used a "fancier" style, while sometimes offering the Pre-Windows XP skin as a selectable option
  • A planned consumer version for Windows 2000, code name Neptune, had a similar UI but was canceled.[7][8]
