Win9x support is dying.  Microsoft no longer supports those old systems.
And while we are not actively trying to break support for them, neither
are we actively trying to maintain them.  And Corinna meant what she said
that you will get more support by discussing your issues on this list than
you will by opening yet another wiki somewhere else.
