Are we still using WSS 3.0 or MOSS 2007?  

In case that the answer to the question is “Yes” – be aware that

  • Mainstream support for this product will end at October 9th, 2012.
  • Extended support will be provided till October 10th, 2017.

That means that no new hotfixes will be created for WSS 3.0 or MOSS 2007 after October 9th, 2012 – except security fixes.

Mainstream support is the timeframe when customers can request hotfixes for the product.

Extended support is the timeframe where only security related hotfixes will be released and no regular hotfixes can be requested (except if the customer has a special extended hotfix support agreement).

For support cases which are not related to hotfix requests there are no major differences between the mainstream and the extended support timeframe.

Mainstream support for MOSS 2007 will end Oct. 9th, 2012

Extended Support for MOSS 2007 will end Oct. 10th, 2017
