Just to be clear, is any company which stops support legacy products
abusing their monopoly?  Or do you just like using that buzzword in
regards to microsoft?

However there is no reason other than trying to force people to
upgrade to
the newest Microsoft OS version to write this browser so that it
would not
support windows 95 as well. Many of the rural users I deal with have
machines barely able to run Windows 95, and forget windows 98.  If I
tell my
users they must upgrade their computers to use my service those users
will
simply find another internet service.
