MS Ends Windows 98/Me Support

The time has come; Microsoft has ended support for its Windows 98 and Windows Millenium Edition (Me) operating systems. Basically, this means that Microsoft will not be producing any more patches or hotfixes for these two operating systems, and also won't have paid phone support available anymore. This leaves the two legacy Windows OSs with at least one glaring security gap, which Microsoft refused to patch on the grounds that it would render many Win98 programs inoperable.
