We (our company) finally stopped supporting Win95 from the beginning
of 2008. We still support Win98. We did a survey and was quite
surprised by the amount of clients still actively using Win98.  They
replied that if it works, why fix it!

I suppose from a commercial point of view - you need to draw the line somewhere.
