is he misinformed...? seems to me that drivers and such would be hard to find and may not even exist for somethings, he isn't into gaming, just running programs and surfing the web...
First off, I have never heard of 2000se. Windows 98se however does exist. It's the only 'se' of anything I know of.
Second, No, it's not the most secure. He is wrong if he thinks it is. Microsoft stopped supporting 2000 a while ago.
and lastly, drivers are still very easy to find for it. Most drivers made for 2000 also work with XP, because of how similar they are.
For his uses though, so long as he has an antivirus, he should be fine.
