At certain enterprises there were internal Win2000 servers and
workstations few years ago. Not checked now.


Statistics say it is 0.2% of the market in 2010. Popularity decreases
at a rate of 2/3 each year. Now it is prolly around 0.066%.

So if VBox has 10 million users, it means there could be 6.6 k users
running Win2000.

I'm willing to test VBox on Win2000 from time-to-time.
