R 2.7.0 will not support Windows 4.x (95, 98, ME, NT4, all of which are 
end-of-life), and will support XP/2003/Vista/2008.

That leaves Windows 2000 (on 'extended support' by MS until 2010), which 
we could in theory allow but have no means of testing.  Does anyone have 
an ongoing need for R on Windows 2000?  If so, are you prepared to test 
the alpha/beta releases every 6 months?

Requests to continue Windows 2000 support to R-windows at r-project.org,
