SharePoint RTM standard support ending


As of January 13, 2009, standard (mainstream) support for WSS 3.0 and SharePoint 2007 RTM (SP0) ends. This is part of the Microsoft Support Lifecycle for their products. Now, I won’t claim to be an expert in the MS Support model so I will just state my current understanding. If I find out more or different information, I will update this post.

You have two options if you wish to be able to continue to be to receive hotfixes (non-security) for problems you have:

  1. Either install Service Pack 1 (my recommended solution). You have to do this option if you want to submit a design change or feature request.
  2. Obtain an extended hotfix agreement, purchased within 90 days of mainstream support ending
