RIP Windows 2000: Oracle Nixes MySQL Support for OS

Oracle has ended MySQL support for a number of operating system versions that have reached end-of-life or were in low demand.

In an announcement,
Oracle notified users of the end of support for all MySQL binaries
for Microsoft Windows 2000 as of Jan. 6. In addition, as of Jan. 1,
Oracle has stopped building MySQL binaries for the following
platforms: Redhat Enterprise Linux v3, SUSE Enterprise Linux v9,
OpenSUSE v9, IBM AIX 5.3, IBM i 5.4 and 6.1 and Linux Generic RPM built
with icc (Intel compiler).

Support for IBM AIX 5.3, IBM i 5.4 and 6.1 and Linux Generic RPM
with icc was dropped due to low demand, according to Oracle. Support
for the other operating systems stopped because they had reached their
respective end-of-life.

Meanwhile, Oracle announced it has added support for Fedora 12, x86 and x86_64, and FreeBSD 8, x86 and x86_64.
