The Windows 2000 Server platform lifecycle will end in July, 2010. After this date, customers still relying on this platform won’t be able to benefit from security hotfixes, patches and service packs, presenting serious concerns around data security, server reliability for mission-critical workloads and regulatory compliance.
In no particularly order, here are the top ten reasons to upgrade from Windows Server 2000 to Windows Server 2008 without delay.
About RSS and news feeds
Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is an easy and free way to get the news you want whenever it is updated, even if you are not on the guardianhost.com Web site. Want up-to-the-minute headlines, the hottest trends in web design, or security alerts? You choose what you want to track and how often you want to be updated.
To use RSS, you'll need to use a news reader — a program that provides a real-time interface to the feeds you select. News readers come in all sizes and shapes. Many are Web-based; some send headlines to your e-mail or cell phone. GuardianHost.com's RSS feeds should work with any reader using the standard XML-based format.
A few examples are:
- NewzCrawler 1.8
NewzCrawler is news reader and browser which provides access to a news content from different sources: RSS/ATOM feeds, Usenet newsgroups and Web. NewzCrawler includes podcast receiver and has built-in blog client. Synchronization feature allows to keep installations on several computers in the same state. Search engine and smart folders reduce information overload. NewzCrawler is a powerful and yet easy to use news aggregator for every day use.
- Mozilla Thunderbird 2
Thunderbird 2 offers a variety of ways for you to organize and display your folders, whether by favorites, recently viewed or folders containing unread messages. As always, you can also set up RSS and newsgroup folders to stay on top of news and your interests. Thunderbird 2 also allows you to maximize your message view pane by opting for a folder drop down menu instead of the traditional sidebar.
