Microsoft Windows 98..Never to be Forgotten Stories..

I will never Forget the Windows 98 Operating System, even though Microsoft has dropped Supporting Windows 98 Officially. Microsoft, Officially from July 11th (Yesterday) has discontinued Support for Windows 98 SE. oops,will we get the Windows98 Compabilty Mode in Windows Vista??? or in the Windows 2003 SP2???or atleast in Windows XP SP3?

I Hate typing long Blogs. But am Truly Emotional to Windows 98 bcoz this(JULY 11,2006) has been an Emotional Date for me and to all those Oldtime 98 Users.Though no much security Features were built in Windows 98,it was one of the fastest OS made by Microsoft. It also had a Widespread Software Vendors to build Softwares that Run on Windows 98 which made it the most Popular OS too. Windows 98 had rescued me and my Data from my computer in more than 50 situations. Cases will be like i had crashed my OS manytimes and Win98 Bootup CD will come to the Rescue.

Here are some of the Cool things which made me addicted to use Windows 98 Often:::::

  1. The FDISK tool in the Windows 98 is an awesome tool and is the most frequently used tool by me.
  2. The install time for Windows 98 on my machine comes to nearly 20mins and 10mins for all the Driver Installation. So its the best chice for a Standby OS when i am in Struck in case of Data Retrieval.
  3. The Bootup CD of Windows98 has been the Coolest thing that can help u handy.
  4. Another supercool thing which impressed many users was the EBD aka Emergency Boot Disk which had all the tools in a Single Floppy disk to get ur Computer to Work.
  5. Once i had the Whole Windows 98 in my USB Drive which was the coolest thing ever i had experimented with Windows98. Plug it anywhere and Windows98 is up for you.((Forget the Driver problem))

As i told I Hate typing long Blogs, i ll end it up in here and will add more of my expereience with Windows 98 later whenever i get the same Issues again. But the drop of the support will not much affect bcoz the Big Brother WindowsXP supports all the applications that were meant for Windows 98. So we all can Still use the old applications until Vienna Comes into Action.
