"Microsoft released Windows 98 Second Edition to retail stores Thursday."
"SE isn't a dramatic departure from the original Win98, but does include Internet Explorer 5.0, Internet Connection Sharing, and the Service Pack 1 collection of updates and fixes. It also contains new or improved support for a series of technologies, including Device Bay, ATM, networking, Wake-on-LAN, and Windows Driver Model modems."
"But before you rush out and buy the $109 list price ($89 street price) SE replacement of the original Windows 98 upgrade CD, there's a far less expensive alternative. Microsoft is making available a $19.95 CD it calls Windows 98 Second Edition Updates. This product will only work if you already have an original Windows 98 CD or an existing Windows 98 installation. But in all other respects, Microsoft says it's exactly the same. To save yourself about $70, order by phone with a credit card by dialing 1-888-287-9755, or visit Microsoft's website to access a secure Web order form."
