If you mean "Are there still active updates", no.  You can purchase a corporate special support contract from Microsoft.  But the prices are geared toward major corporations and it's "all that the traffic will bear."

Well ,not exactly.
XP POS is still supported and is basically the same OS.
You could use a registry hack to make you 2003 look like XP POS.
It works as I have used it.
But use at your own risk.
