Hey--another choice is Opera. There is no indication yet that future
Operas will not run on Win 9x. A Win 9x user who uses a firewall,
up-to-date antivirus, and antispam protection and who uses the Web
responsibly is probably not in much danger.

I do agree that there is no reason to try to make Scribus compatible
with Win 98. Sticking with an obsolete operating system means that a
growing number of programs will not be able to run on it. If this is
unacceptable, the only course is to upgrade the OS--more sensibly,
get a new computer that comes with the OS installed.
