  1. Update 11 still works for Minecraft under XP, but I also cannot get it to work in a browser.  I noticed there is no longer an option to disable the next generation plugin or Java quick starter in the control panel, so I wonder if it's installing everything properly.

  2. So, that leaves me with trying a more up-to-date ATI/AMD card.

    Someone here has been trying to use a more recent ATI card than the one I have, and it looks as if the very latest ATI AGP cards that will work with Windows 98 are the X800 series.

    As you said something about playing recent games, an ATI card is going to be a bad choice if any of your games need (or would look better with) shader model 3.0 support. The x8xx series cards do not support SM 3.0. The x1xxx cards do support SM 3.0, but they have no drivers for Win9x/ME. I discovered this the hard way when I purchased BioShock three years ago :-(

  3. I don't want to use wep because thats means my network is easy hackable

    WPA is also easily hackable. Today it was hacked by Japanese researchers within a minute. There will be a conference next month to discuss the details (Check today's tech news over at Yahoo.). You really want WPA2 if you're concerned about being hackable.

  4. people should learn to leave their comfort zone and upgrade

    Going with this argument, I might be ok with this idea if Windows NT and Office 97 get the same treatment. I.e. archive the merged nt4/2000/2003 forum and start fresh as the 2000/2003 forum (same for the merged office 97/2000/2002-XP/2003/2007 forum).
