This question I will ask has been bugging me for a few years now. I sometimes visit puter shops and see in the retail ops section windows, 95,98,98se,ME,2000,2000 Pro, Xp, XP Pro various from upgrade to full. Now I think this is correct M$ have a value of the life of the ops. What I mean is you have about 7 years of updates and support I think before it's seen as ancient and not worthy of updating anymore. Now if I were to buy win 98 full for the children I have a lot of educational stuff that only runs on 95+98, will I still get (say I got it today) 7 years of updates? I think M$ should not stop supporting the ops for at least 25 years. I know it's a bit odd asking this and most will say get XP or latest ops, but I have a lot of bits sitting in boxes from other PC's from upgrades and changes that all work I could build 5 PC's.
