Intel sticks with Windows 2000

Phased implementation is everything, know what we mean?

YOU CAN SUBSCRIBE to receive for zero a business enterprise newsletter from Intel which gives you guidance on how to make your business thrum and also to prevent it stop thrumming.

We know we are regular recipients of this email probably once a month, and the latest issue tells you how to protect your corporation by implementing regular patching.

In Intel's case, in the newsletter dated 27th October last, it sends us to this recent page, which confirms our earlier reports that the chip giant has not yet moved to Windows XP.

It figured out how to implement patches in its install of Windows 2000 across the corporation, using third party auditing tools to check out that everything was hunky dory.

To be fair the main thrust of the newsletter is how its latest processors with Execute Disability functionality combat buffer overflow attacks.

But if Intel, a corporation of 80,000 souls has still to be convinced to shift to XP, how much more so the rest of us? µ
