Hello, i have at first look simple question but it could be complicated.. I wonder why is not almost any new program not compatible with Windows 98, because majority of SW is still for Windows platform.. I know, that there new frameworks versions available only for new OSes, but that forces developers use them, are they really so huge benefits to abandon Windows 98 or its simple laziness care about such users? I dont have problems with few really HW hungry programs which needs 64bit OS, i dont care about games, which need newest GPU drivers, but normal apps, like browsers, monitoring utils graphics editors etc, here i dont see why this could still run on Windows 98..
I have a strong affinity for the legacy OSes, since that's what I grew up using. I've been creating a tweaking utility for XP and above (registry tweaks and such). I'd really like to create something useful for the legacy operating systems. Does anyone have suggestions on what I should create? Even if it's outside my scope, I'm happy to learn.
