Just FYI- this is from M$ Exploring Windows, Jan 24th, 2006:



End of support for Windows 98 and Windows Me
Effective June 30, 2006, Windows 98, Windows 98 Second Edition, and Windows Me will transition to a non-supported status. After this date, Microsoft will no longer provide any incident support options or security updates. Existing support documents, however, will continue to be available through the Microsoft Support Product Solution Center Web site.

Now you know. :thumbsup:

I guess thats the plan now but that deadline has been extended before. The last time it was because of the prevalence of these operating systems in developing countries. Lets hope that MS will rethink this again.
