I still use 98 on my second pc, which is networked with my xp pro. 98 served me for years. I learnt on 98, and am now relatively good at this computer thing. I would never once slate 98. My only reason for using XP is how pretty much all new software is 2k and above! Ending support, in my opinion, is a terrible idea. For a small company that hasen't spoke the name of their product for years would be understandable, but for MS, who are large, rich, and with 98 being one of the most widely used versions, why shoud spport end. It's like saying "thanks for buying 98 but upgrade to be safe". Why only provide security updates for the newer? Because they're the 100+ versions, whereas 98OEM can be found ligit for a tenner!

Never stop helping valued customers... all it says to me is that we aren't valued!
