Windows "Software giant Microsoft has named the day that Windows 98 and Millennium users will no longer have support. On July 11, the two operating systems will have their final breakfast before being wiped from Vole's support brain. Although many expected Microsoft to stop supporting the quaintly antique software, the date for liquidation was uncertain."

Well, this will cause a major hit for people still running Win98 (there's LOTS of them). But from what I know, Win98 didn't get much love from MS anyway. I hope abusers won't exploint this event even more by hitting still running Win98 computers with some malware.
