I've hassled people on a couple of occasions about things that don't 
work in elderly OSes (I've still got a few NT4 systems), but in general 
I agree.

Elsewhere, somebody's pointed out http://kernelex.sourceforge.net/ which 
is a compatibility layer that updates/implements windows '98 APIs to the 
extent that it's supposed to be able to run recent copies of Mozilla 
etc.  I've not tried it, there's some depths I'm reluctant to plumb :-)
