Microsoft has done an about-face on Windows 98. It has decided that it
will continue to support the old operating system, through June, 2006.
Support for ME will have the same deadline. It previously was scheduled
to die at the end of this year.

Support will carry a fee; there is no free support. Microsoft will
continue to issue free patches for security problems. At the end of
2003, there were 58 million copies of 98 in use worldwide, according
to IDC, a research firm. Windows ME accounted for 25 million more,
it said.

Yeah, I saw that today too. I also noticed that Windows XP lifecycle ends December of 2005. I guess next year is when they are planning to introduce whatever they want to call Longhorn at that time.
