Win 3.1 and the year 2000

I would like to ask if Microsoft will be supporting 3.1 after Jan. 1? I have heard rumors that they will NOT. Also I have heard that they have sent out a memo regarding this question, but I have yet to recieve it. I would like if you have something saying this that you could forward it so my parents will change my operating system from 3.1. Thank you very much...Jokr29

Windows 3.1 IS y2k compliant - with a note from Microsoft stating: The product is compliant with acceptable deviations from Microsoft's standard of compliance. An acceptable deviation does not affect the core functionality, data integrity, stability, or reliability of the product.

As far as support goes, the various resources on the internet are generally of more use to you than Microsoft's phone support.  Further, if you purchased your computer from another vendor and it including Windows 3.1, then that vendor (Dell, Gateway, Joe's computer Store down the block) is the company that gives you support - Microsoft will refer you to them as the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer).
