For any OS that Microsoft releases, It provides 10 years of support (5 years Mainstream Support and 5 years Extended Support).

as per http://support.microsoft.com/lifecycle/?p1=7017

The main stream support for windows 2000 ended on 30/6/2005 and the extended support will be available till 13/07/2010

Mainstream Support is the first phase of the product support lifecycle.
At the supported service pack level, Mainstream Support includes:

Incident support (no-charge incident support, paid incident support, support charged on an hourly basis, support for warranty claims)
Security update support
The ability to request non-security hotfixes


The Extended Support phase follows Mainstream Support for Business and Developer products.
At the supported service pack level, Extended Support includes:

Paid support
Security update support at no additional cost
Non-security related hotfix support requires a separate Extended Hotfix Support Agreement to be purchased (per-fix fees also apply)
