Why do they abbreviate Microsoft as M$?

Its probably something to do with the article saying they changed their minds so they can stop developing nations choosing cheaper open source operating systems like Linux is probably why. :)

Never mind that they have millions of customers who bought their products. Cynical point of view I know but anyway its good news for people still using this os.

You and they don't know what your missing. Many an interesting and thought provoking discussion takes place in there.

At the risk of repeating myself....even if MS did stop 'support' for 98 there are hundreds of sites that will hold all the patches etc. I used 98 for 5 years and NEVER downloaded any 'updates'. You don't need them and they will still be easily available should you feel the need.

This is no more of a problem than wondering what the weather is going to be like in July 2005.
