Just curious as to why people still use Win 98. Is it still viable?

I still use it.
This machine runs multi hours per day...7 days per week...does what I need...does NOT give me any fuss.

I should go looking for trouble?

Why is it that people think something or someone is old so just dispose of them?

Some forget to learn how to support the OS. They get upset that support lines don't support this OS. No one said for you to get rid of it. But like your old gear you must learn how to self support.
