The current generation of certifications do not expire, though the exams do
get retired. That will not happen for the duration of extended support for
the product, so Windows XP/2003 exams will not be retired until 2010.

I've never heard of a rule about them not expiring until extended support
lapses - is that for all exams/products? .... If it is a standard rule, I'd
love to know for sure.

As I said, they do not expire, but yes exams for unsupported products do get
retired.

What about the 2000 product exams retiring soon? I have 217, 219 and 224 to
pass for mcse then I plan on taking the 292 and 296 to upgrade mcsa and mcse
to 2003.

Brad the fact that the exam is retired does not change the fact that you
passed it. It simply means that you cannot take them anymore. I do not
know when 217, 219, and 224 are going to be retired but if I were you I'd
get off my arse.

As for me I decided to skip the MCSE on Windows 2000 and just pursue the
MCSE 2003... but been so busy haven't had time
