    I'm glad to see support continue for Windows 98, since that's what I'm running right now. I would like to upgrade to XP, but I'm planning on getting a new computer altogether sometime soon. Until then, 98 gets the job done nicely enough.

    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    I'm running 98SE. I have a full version of XP pro sitting on my shelf but haven't loaded it. I, too, have many old games that simply won't run on XP. Making the switch is something I'm not prepared to do. Besides, 98SE is very stable and gets the job done.

    I have a Win98 box with a monitor that I converted into a fish tank sitting on top of it. It's a very nice conversation piece

    Something like this

    Just because you play old games doesn't mean that MS still needs to support you using an outdated system, though.
