While I agree that a lot of conscientious people worked a lot of hours in the run-up to Y2K, IIRC a patch for Windows believing 2000 would be a leap year came out in something like November 1999. This despite earlier complaints from fin-tech people that computations of future value or the like were odd. The thing is,, sometimes you don't just need to know what day today is, but what day 60 or 180 days from now will be.
