Windows From today, Microsoft will no longer issue security updates or provide support for Windows 98 and Windows ME, which could lead users to trying alternative operating systems such as Linux. Eight years after launching Windows 98, Microsoft will finally wash its hands of updating and plugging security gaps in its ageing operating system. The software giant originally planned to pull the plug in January 2004 but decided to extend support because of the increasing threat from Linux.

Member since:

I wont keep arguing with you rakamaka this is the last reply i am going to make.

My point is WHY would i WANT to put ubuntu on such crap hardware, point is i wouldn't.

And i have already made my point that most modern distros which are any good do have a way of ejecting the cd-rom as ubuntu does nicely.

You are an argumentative idiot, people like you really shouldn't be allowed the privilage of posting comments here.
