MS Win98 support reprieve was move to block Linux, says Gartner

Microsoft's extension of the support period for the Windows 98 product family earlier this week was a move intended largely to discourage the adoption
of Linux in emerging markets, according to Gartner. The research outfit concludes that the move comes too late for it to be relevant to enterprise
migration plans, but that extra life support for 98 could be important to Microsoft elsewhere.
