Physics 2000 has not been superceded by PhET.

Phys 2000 was a completely separate, independent project. It is true that
some of the same faculty have collaborated in both projects. However, PhET
is not replacing Phys 2000 applets, in general, at least not yet.

Physics 2000 was focused exclusively on modern physics and independent,
introductory learners, not necessarily enrolled in a traditional school.
Professor Carl Wieman, who created PhET, also co-produced Bose-Einstein
condensation applets for Phys 2000 and was an advisor for the project.
