Multibooter Posted May 2, 2009 Share Posted May 2, 2009 (edited) Not in California.Epson still support Windows 98... and on Epson site is possible to download Windows 98 drivers http://esupport.epson-europe.com/ProductHo...PV41&tc=6#7Great info Rjecina. And great that Epson supports their Win98 customers. I had no problem getting the latest Win98 driver for the my Epson Stylus Photo 1280 from the US website, but this is apparently a US model not sold in Europe, it's not on their model list of Epson Europe at http://esupport.epson-europe.com/SupportHo...2FzEJ1ZP6LGPV41 only models 1270 and 1290 are listed.It is very interesting that the US support page for the Epson Stylus 1400 (apparently a model sold in both markets) does NOT have Win98 downloads http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support...latform=Windows while the European support page DOES list Win98 downloads http://esupport.epson-europe.com/ProductHo...LGPV41&tc=6 When I was in Germany and Switzerland 6 months ago Media Markt, ProMarkt and Saturn still had plenty of Win98-compatible printers. The United States is rapidly becoming the boondocks of personal computing, the backcountry, the outback. In Europe, for example, stores have a rich choice of Win98 compatible SDHC card readers, at Fry's in California I couldn't find one, but plenty of SD readers which didn't indicate whether they were for modern cards>2GB. The U.S. PC Magazine has vanished into virtual nothingness, at the magazine stands in the U.S. one can find maybe still one or two lone PC-oriented publications, next to about 30 publications about cars, SUVs and motorcycles. In Germany in contrast there are maybe 7 really good PC publications, of which my personal favorite one is PC Praxis. all at a level never reached by a single US publication available at newsstands during the last 5 years.One of the nicest things ever made in the U.S., the Mickey Mouse and Uncle Scrooge comics, cannot be gotten anymore in the U.S. (except for very hard to find reprints for a handful of adult collectors), and Disney Channel in contrast to 10 years ago doesn't show these Duck Tales cartoons anymore. But in Europe you can still find these Americana at every newsstand. Possibly Windows 98SE will become as legendary as Mickey Mouse, but hard to find in its country of origin.
