June 25 was the day Microsoft released Windows98. Although not a magic item — it affects more than 90% of MagicTimes readers. I decided to take the plunge — two out of the three computers which service MagicTimes are now running on Win98. Some things are better and faster, others are not. The installation was uneventful — which is great news. One disappointment are the three Microsoft IntelliMice I bought last year (for $270) are still not up to snuff — Win98 does not even recognize them as such. Allow yourself 2-3 hours to install Win98 and then uninstall the items you don’t need. Good luck.(6/26)
