A Purer Gene Pool
A Purer Gene Pool Architect Frank Lloyd Wright once famously said that "a doctor can bury his mistakes, but an architect can only advise his clients to plant vines." Windows 98 planted vines to obscure the awkward lines of a graphical environment grafted onto a crude DOS foundation. Its time to bury it. Windows 98 has more than a dozen users, to be sure, but it also does some dreadfully stupid things with memory and task management that we do well to purge from the software gene pool. The reliability and security of the platforms that we offer to future users depend on deep-sixing dead tech.
