I really don't know what I was trying to say, actually.  :-)

Maybe I was saying that "nothing is certain" or that "it probably won't
happen for a long time".

Both Corinna and I would love to give up on Win9x but I don't see it
happening in the next year or two, unless something changes drastically.
I guess eventually all of those old Win9x systems will have to stop
working and people will have to buy new XP systems.  Who knows when
that will happen, though?
