Win98 Support drawing to a close

April 14th, 2006 by Patrick S

Final customer notification about the end of Windows 98, Windows 98 Second Edition, and Windows Millennium Edition Extended Support

Support for Windows 98, Windows 98 Second Edition, and Windows Millennium Edition (Me) ends on July 11, 2006. Microsoft will end public and technical support by this date. This also includes security updates. Microsoft is providing final notifications to customers to end the extended security update support for these products.

Microsoft is ending support for these products because they are outdated and these older operating systems can expose customers to security risks. We recommend that customers who are still running Windows 98 or Windows Me upgrade to a newer, more secure Microsoft operating system, such as Windows XP, as soon as possible.

🙁 The End of an era!

    Thank god. I think it is time people moved away from Win98 as serious computer users. I hope MS now releases them as free software (yeah right!!)! I had a good experience with Windows 98. Great for games, fast little OS. But it was so very unstable if you didnt take care of it. I will miss it.
