Who would want to hack 95/98 at this late date?  Just say'in  IMO, 98 & Xp were probably the best beside 10.  Heck, I'm still running specialized apps on Xp and they are going strong.  :-)

All except one of those has multiple show stopper security vulnerabilities for which there are no fixes available and yet people are connecting them to the internet.

It could just be that ham's are so advanced that they all deploy browser identity obfuscation software that lies about user agent strings to webservers. We can only hope...!

I thought you might find it interesting to learn what Windows OS are being used by fldigi users:

This list only indicates what Windows version was being used by those who visited

I was surprised to see a few die-hard 95/98 users still roaming the web; potential targets for nasty hackers.
