Windows NT Workstation Support Retired

Windows NT 4.0 Workstation died with little fanfare on Monday.

Microsoft formally ended support for the product seven years after its July 1996 launch. The decision leaves users with two generations of replacement products – Windows 2000 Professional and Windows XP Professional – both of which are major improvements on Windows NT Workstation.

Windows NT Workstation's contemporaries on the server side live on, with Microsoft having extended support for Windows NT 4.0 Server, Enterprise Edition and Terminal Server Edition until Dec. 31, 2004. Customers wanting incident and security support for those servers after Jan. 1 will have to pay by the incident, according to Microsoft's support Web site.
