Pretty standard Windows support lifecycle. Yes Win95 ceased to be supported a couple of years ago (just after XP came out from memory).

Problem is, some old hardware that is still perfectly serviceable just won't run the latest MS operating systems (even Win2k had some pretty restrictive hardware compatibility issues) and some legacy applications (incl some business apps) are just never going to be 2k/xp/vista compatible.

Just because Microsoft ceases support, deosn't mean the O/S dies. (Just look at the Win95 forum )
