WINDOWS 98: DEAD MAN WALKING
By John Hogan, News Editor

It wasn't as dramatic as a last-minute stay from the governor.
Nonetheless, Windows 98 got a reprieve from execution this week.

Rather than end support for the desktop OS today, as scheduled,
Microsoft will continue to offer paid support until the middle of
2006. That goes for Windows 98 SE and Windows ME, as well. By then ,
the only users who'll still be firing up those versions are the
people who are still driving '72 Chevy Impalas today. Great car. Just
a wee past its prime.

best wishes.
