Being the proud "owner" of Windows 98 Second Edition, the news was a bit sad, but I guess that was kind of inevitable. Sometimes good things have to pass and make space for newer things, although I am not exactly certain whether or not the "new" products are technically superior than their predecessors.
They both have their ups and downs. What you may want to purchase depends entirely on your preferences.
If you want Windows 98, that's good. If you want Windows XP, then that's also good.
Obviously, Microsoft is going to support programs that produce more profit then wasting time catering to our needs.
Sometimes, it feels as though my life is just a never-ending circle of pain and misery. Not to mention sadness, worthlessness, and humiliation. But I can only cry inside. Deep behind my happy smile and bright personality is a sad and lonely person, a mere figment of my former self. Someday, all this pain will be over. I will drop down and die. At other times I ask myself, \"If only this would happen right now\".
