It is unknown if the iPods will work with Windows 2000 using 3rd party software. However, iTunes 7.4 simply will not install and won't work with Win2k. So right now, the new iPods cannot work under Windows 2000. There might be some 3rd party programs that come out later down the line but nothing is known right now.

Many people on iLounge are complaining about that but I don't think it is a big deal. Windows 2000 was released 7-8 years ago (I remember buying a PC back in 1999 that came with Windows 2000) so it is pretty old. Most of the PC market is running Windows XP and newer computers are running Vista. I don't think Apple is asking too much from their users by requiring them to spend less than $100 to upgrade to Windows XP Pro.

Then again, many people have been running Windows 2000 for many, many years now and are happy with it. I guess we can't expect Apple to support the aged OS forever.

The other side of the argument is:
  • XP is only 20 months "newer" than 2000, a time frame that pales in comparison to over six years of runtime for both.
  • Architecturally (and practically), there is little difference between 2000 and XP. You'll find many more differences between OS 10.1 and 10.4, which spans less than 2000's and XP's reign. To be fair, Apple supports old versions of Windows better than old versions of OS X. Even 10.3, less than four years old, is close to useless now.
  • 2000 still has a sizable install base (though not in the consumer sector).
  • It just isn't that much effort to support 2000. If it were, every other program wouldn't do it. Other than Apple, Microsoft is the only company which comes to mind that puts unnecessary restrictions on operating system versions (for selfish reasons on their part).
