Since when did "Open Source" imply having an executable binary readily
available for any platform a user might desire one for?
Are you aware that you are not paying for this product? You have two very
reasonable options for the luxary of using this
excellent and entirely free product built by the efforts and volunteer
work of an entire community.
1. Use one of the OSes that binaries are released for by those doing free
2. "If" Blender fails to compile/run for win2k then get off your butt and
help find out why this is the case.
I am sure some individuals in the community would be willing to assist.

Blender is suppose to be open and free and with this
one snafu, Blender is no longer open and free.
Actually, I just checked. The source code is indeed open and free
still, but that was of two minutes ago so it is possible someone shut
I believe that would mean that you are able to download the source
code and get it to compile on Windows 2000. I'm sure the Blender
developers would be looking forward to your patches if it indeed can't
compile on Windows 2000.
