PLANNED OBSOLESCENCE: Reuters reports that “After Monday Microsoft won’t be taking support calls for the venerable operating system”, Windows NT 4.0 Workstation, and another Windows OS is also being phased out:


The next Microsoft operating system on the block will be Windows 98. As of Jan. 16, 2004, the now-five-year-old OS will be laid to rest.

Tuesday, however, also marks a milestone for Windows 98. As of July 1, no-charge assisted support for the OS disappears. For-fee support continues for another six-and-a-half months.

My wife and I are still using Windows 2000 on all but two of our home and office PCs (which have Win98). Fortunately, it looks like they’re still supporting that OS–for now.
