Macromedia released Dreamweaver 8. In fact it has ceased all support and free trial releases for Dreamweaver MX 2004. The problem is that version 8 is only good for Windows 2000 and XP. I have Windows 98SE.

They don’t want me to buy their product. If I were to speak with them I would say “up yours”.

Microsoft has also all but killed support for Windows 98. My fear is for when they finally kill Windows Update support for Windows 98. The version as installed is not a complete version; it’s impossible to have a complete OS package of that version without connecting to the internet (my dial-up modem is currently dysfunctional) so I cannot get a full system right now. Even when I reestablish the Internet I fear for the day when I reformat my hard drive but cannot fully restore my system.

Everyone needs to reformat their systems every three months or so.
