It is Time to “Put Down” the Dog!
If you have ever been a pet owner that had an old faithful pet, that just got so sick and pitiful that it had to be, as the saying goes, “put down,” then you will understand the anxiety of current Microsoft Windows 95, 98 and ME owners! This July 11th is it! Microsoft will no longer support those operating systems… if you call, they will laugh! They will no longer post security fixes. In short, you should bury these old dogs before July!
“You can’t say you weren’t warned. This July, years after it should have happened, Microsoft will end all meaningful support for Windows 98, Windows 98 Second Edition and Windows ME. Here is the key quote from the announcement: ‘…critical security updates for Windows 98, Windows 98 Second Edition, and Windows ME will end on July 11, 2006. No other security updates will follow after this date.'”
It is time to “move on” to more modern OSs… is it time for you to consider Linux? Or, will you still support the Evil Empire?
