Depends on how much it actually uses stuff that ain't in XP anymore.Oddjob64 wrote:Do you really think Google is going to keep supporting Windows Server 2003 after they drop support for Windows XP? Most vendors don't even consider Windows Server in their support lifecycle. It's not meant to be used for web browsing anyway.EmuandCo wrote:Luckily we are NOT Windows XP, we are Windows 2003 SP1 ^^
Usually, when a vendor says they are no longer going to support Windows XP, it means their software will only run on Windows NT 6.0+.
And I don't think having NT 5.2 report itself as NT 6.1 would help at that point.
Note that Windows NT 5.2 Service Pack 1 can also stand for Windows XP x64 Edition SP1.
(P.S. But yeah, Chrome is going to stop providing updates for Server 2003 before Internet Explorer 6 )
A lot of progs just check for it, but once 'satisfied', they'll run just fine. Of course, as time goes by, this will lessen, but for the short run, it's probably not a bad idea to pretend we're a bit 'higher'. There is already a thread on that subject for acting as SP2, for instance.
