Microsoft shelves aging software

Network World Fusion

Excerpt from Microsoft shelves aging software article:
Other products on the chopping block include SQL Server 6.5, Windows NT 4.0 Workstation and Server, and Internet Information Server 4.0.

The worst part of that is that we are still on SQL Server 6.5, Windows NT 4.0 Server, and IIS 4.0.

As Microsoft's director of security, product support services, Andy Erlandson puts it, "The risk to customers who remain on a product that is no longer supported is that a situation might arise where a security vulnerability is discovered which cannot be fixed."

Wait a second, you mean that is a possibility with a Microsoft product. ;-)
