This page lacks information about which versions of Python were last supported for Windows 95, Windows 98 and Windows 2000. Which may run even though they are not supported on these platforms anymore.

You'll want to look at http://wiki.python.org/moin/PythonWebsiteCreatingNewTickets

Win 2000 is currently supported, although there have been rumblings of beginning to drop that support.

The info exists in PEP-11 for now, but I agree that a sentence would fit on that download page. The title of the page could also use an update.

From PEP-11:
    Name:             Win9x, WinME, NT4
    Unsupported in:   Python 2.6 (warning in 2.5 installer)
    Code removed in:  Python 2.6
