I'm not one to post links to articles that might cause a panic, but as far as I can tell, this is legit.

Bad news for Andy and other Windows 98 goers - it seems no Windows 98 patch is provided. Sad

Do you have a better link than Forbes?

Also, I would be incredibly surprised if they released a patch for 98, or even XP.

They did officially cease support for Windows XP cause it's so old by now. I didn't expect anyone to use Windows 98 today, except maybe secondarily specifically for 16 bit stuff.

Don't know if you missed the memo, but Andy hasn't been here for 18 months. Very dearly missed.
