Microsoft Pulling Plug on Windows 98, 98 SE and ME

For those of you still puttin' around on Windows 98 or Windows 98 SE, you'll be cut-off from Microsoft in July. If you're still running Windows Millennium, well I'm sorry to hear that. Customers will no longer be provided with critical security updates after July 11, 2006. From Microsoft's Help and Support site:

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.
