Just under 3% of all visitors and mender to this site are still running 98, 98se and ME.
MS 98/me support

MS have extended 98/me support several times beyond their orginal expirery date
They have finally announced
“June 30, 2006 will bring a close to Extended Support for Windows 98, Windows 98 Second Edition, and Windows Me as part of the Microsoft Lifecycle Policy. Microsoft will retire public and technical support, including security updates, by this date.”
“Existing support documents and content, however, will continue to be available through the Microsoft Support Product Solution Center Web site. This Web site will continue to host a wealth of previous How-to, Troubleshooting, and Configuration content for anyone who may need self-service.”

I have often been asked this question (not here)in regards to how often do MS release patches...

"Microsoft releases security updates for its software products on the second Tuesday of every month, a day that has become known as "Patch Tuesday" among security experts. This is also known as “Black Tuesday” since most network administrators waste hours trying to update all the necessities. "

I have a personal opinion of too many IT/computer ppl, How they justify high high incomes by complex explanations, and by the same method cover their screwups and lazyness and lack of knowledge and simply pass the buck and blame it on a virus.
Security is an important part of what they are paid to do, just as a warehouse man is paid to stack boxes.
"This is also known as “Black Tuesday” since most network administrators waste hours trying to update all the necessities."
That statement pretty well somes their attitude up...a warehouseman would get fired with that attitidude

P.S I work in the industry, building hardware and small business/school network admins
