BAM!!!

I caught you in a lie. Windows 2000 is discontinued meaning you can no longer buy it in a local retail store.... Were there leftovers....

Well it's discontinued so there are no new boxed products of win2K shipping to stores so all they can sell are boxes that did not sell correct (ie leftovers). I suppose ebay will still have them but what about serial keys....
