Software Upgrades

Win98se still is a good program why would you want to use such a bloated program like XP.

I upgraded once so I could use Office XP! Why? Office 97 has almost all the same features and I still do not use all of them.

Requirements of software...

Some of the newer games(Like Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion for one example) won't play on win98se and for some of us, the software we use to make other software requires an upgrade, e.g. Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 requires at least Win2K or XP if not Win2003 or Vista.
