Microsoft has officially said it will stop making or supporting software or hardware for Windows 98 & Windows ME. :

This means that no more products will come out for these 2 OS's. All I can say is it, had to happen someday...

True. But for those with these 2 OS's, you'll still recieve support etc. for free so theres no need to be worried. Microsoft probably done this to move people in to the 2000/XP era.

Windows 98 2nd edition was a very good operating system. I still have that on an old computer and it never crashes. Windows 98 1st edition, on the other hand, was awful.
