Windows 98 anyone?

While a lot of people seem to be bent on making Windows XP go away, this is still a thing... :shock:

Microsoft has never released a service pack for Windows98 SE. But I made a Service Pack for Windows98 SE users. It contains all Windows98 SE updates from Windows Update site and more.
Only mention I found around TPFC is at viewtopic.php?t=3343. Softpedia page at http://www.softpedia.com/progDownload/U ... -9065.html.

Also no mention of disk cost but the downloadable package is roughly 17MB. Anyone for a Windows on (way) less than a Gigabyte and able to run on 32MB of RAM? :D

BTW, this topic is now irretrievable via forum search, since both "windows" and "98" keywords will be promptly discarded...

That's very handy. There are a log list of great games that worked best on that platform and the "SE" setup was ideal among them.

Kudos to the author.
