Fine by me - one of the reasons that I was able to convince my wife last
fall that it was time to replace my 8-year-old 266MHz win98 machine with a
brand-new dual-core 2.6GHz WinXP machine was this very thread, and telling
her that win98 is no longer supported by Microsoft.  Which means I no
longer test any of my packages on win98, and am no longer sure that all my
coreutils tweaks work in spite of win98's limitations.

Don't work too hard, make some time for fun as well!
