    I received this from the folks at



    Madrid, January 13, 2004 - According to The Inquirer -at -, Microsoft will continue
    offering support for Windows 98 and Windows Millennium Edition (ME) until
    June 2006.

    Support for these systems -widely used in organizations and small and medium
    businesses-, was due to end this week. This would have meant that Microsoft
    would cease to offer all types of patches and updates for both these
    operating systems, leaving many users unprotected against new threats that
    could appear.

    Given that support for Windows 98 and Windows ME (Millennium Edition) is now
    extended to 2006, Microsoft will continue all current maintenance contracts,
    as well as the publication of updates and patches as it has done until now.

    "During the extended support period, the company will offer paid
    phone support and review security threats to
    determine whether it will
    provide customers with security patches."
