Microsoft ended support for Windows ME and 98

Microsoft today officially ended all support for those two old versions of Windows. Its mainly because problems with security in those.. They are old, contain too many holes in security (even with all available patches) and are too problematic to be supported. Microsoft also hopes that this step will force users using those old systems to move onto XP, which will bring nice profit. By experts is not probable that many people will do this, because most users who need security on computer already moved to XP, and those others, who have 98 or ME at second or third comp at home (mostly offline) wont leave them.
