98 is Coming!
The time has finally come. With all the hooplah, delays, legal rumblings and noise - Windows 98 is finally ready to hit the shelves! A release date of June 10th has been announced, and our clients have three magic questions on their minds. Well, we have some interesting answers for you, and a big surprise....Windows 98 (or a big part of it) may already be on your present computer!
Q: "WHAT IS WINDOWS 98? IS IT A BIG CHANGE FROM WINDOWS 95?"
A: While Windows 98 appears to have some very nice improvements over its predecessor, many of its best qualities are kept "under the hood". In other words, the car may look the same but the engine has been completely revamped (like the new VW Beetle!).
The look and feel of Windows 98 has changed with the introduction
of an "Active Desktop". The Active Desktop is a combination
of the Start Button and icons of Windows 95 and a web interface
which allows you to move through Windows and the Web almost seamlessly.
While some (like myself) may find this new interface a pleasure
to work with, you can also keep old Windows 95 "look" while
still getting all the other goodies.
Our take on these reviews is that Windows 98 is not an earth-shattering, reality crushing or life changing upgrade. This is good news. It means you won’t have to go through days (or even hours) of re-training just to do the things that were easy for you to do with Windows 95. Some things will actually be easier than before, imagine that!
A great many bugs, protection faults and "glitches" which have become the trademark of Windows 95 are resolved with Windows 98. Also, all of the new hardware which has come out in the last 3 years (like your new printer, scanner, sound card etc.) will automatically be recognized and maintained by Windows.
The best news that we have heard is that your existing network, computer and software will most likely work with far fewer problems than they do under Windows 95.
Q: SHOULD I UPGRADE?
