InformationWeek > Microsoft Windows > Microsoft Nixes IE 7 For Windows 2000 > May 31, 2005: "Microsoft has confirmed that it won't release a version of its upcoming Internet Explorer 7 for Windows 2000, putting an end to speculation -- some of it fueled by Microsoft -- that the Redmond, Wash.-based developer would offer a more secure, revamped browser to users of that the aging-but-still-used operating system.
IE 7 will run only on Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) when it releases in beta form shortly, Microsoft IE program manager Chris Wilson wrote on the Internet Explorer Weblog. One reason: 'some of the security work in IE7 relies on operating system functionality in XPSP2 that is non-trivial to port back to Windows 2000,' Wilson wrote. "
