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."

"Re-tool that user with linux.No new machine needed.No need to upgrade to a new distro in two years since the community has a wealth of info and only doing simple tasks of email, web browsing , word processing anyways. "

What is the difference ? If you dont' upgrade, you will always have a system where bugs and security issues won't be fixed, be that system windows98 or Red Had 6.0. And I'm sure you won't be able to use any recent linux distro on an aging machine.
