This group to function as replacement for MSFN.ORG Windows-98 forum by 98 Guy
Until MSFN.ORG comes back up (it seems pretty mortally wounded for the past few days) I hereby deem that this Usenet Newsgroup (microsoft.public.win98.gen_discussion) is to be used as a place where former MSFN users can regroup and continue discussions regarding windows 98 matters. Any Questions?

It's time to Quit using Win98 by [email protected]
I've held on to Win98 for years, and always loved it. I've added everything possible such as Kernal-Ex, to keep it going, and struggled to cope with incompatible software that requires newer versions of Windows, particularly browsers. The time has come to retire Win98, and allow Microsoft to...
