2000 (MM) was a leap year that started on Saturday of the Common Era, in accordance with the Gregorian calendar. 2000 was also the first century leap year since 1600. 2000 was designated as: • International Year for the Culture of Peace. • World Mathematical Year. The year 2000 was the target of Y2K concerns, fearing computers could not shift from 2-digit "99" to "2000"; however, many companies had already converted their software, even obtaining Y2K certification, and relatively few problems occurred. Popular culture also holds the year 2000 as the first year of the 21st century and the third millennium. In the Gregorian Calendar, however, this distinction falls to the year 2001, because the first century began with year AD 1 (there was no year zero), and the thousand years spanned to years 1 – 1000 inclusive; the next millennium then being from 1001 – 2000 (see more at: millennium).
