Win 98 date finally announced

Circle June 25 on your calendar. That's when Microsoft claims it will launch the long-awaited Windows 98.

As always, Bill's boys have come up with few enhancements for the operating system and will use the slogan "Windows 98 works better, plays better" as its mantra.

The estimated retail pricing for the upgrade version for users of Windows 95 and 3.1 is expected to be $169, while the full version is expected to be $319.

Windows 98 will include native support for USB, faster applications loading and will "unlock an exciting new range of PC hardware and entertainment capabilities", according to officials.

However, it remains to be seen if the US Department of Justice will ruin Microsoft's party.
