I built a file server running win2k server for my office with help from a friend in the year 2000. It is still running and serving the 5 users it was configured for. I only had to deal with a fried power supply (caused by lightning and a failed UPS) and a replacement for a failed RAID hard drive after about 5 years. Bottom line is it actually saved me a few bucks without too much downside.
