Yes ancient Microsoft fans I still own both Windows 98 and Windows 98 Plus, in fact I still have an unopened Windows For Workgroups 3.11!
I just installed 98SE, alongside XP, for a friend of mine who has some old software he wants to continue using. For me personally, 98 was the version that sent me over to Linux, and I have never looked back.
...packed with great software! Did you install it? What was you favorite game/utility/desktop theme?
...last day of the Tech-Ed 95 conference was the official release date of the infamous Microsoft Bob and throughout the conference center, Microsoft representatives were handing out free copies. I still have the shrink wrapped package. Check out the Tech-Ed Swag from the 1990s gallery http://www.techrepublic.com/photos/tech-ed-swag-from-the-1990s/6346345
