"Windows 98 users planning on getting bug fixes and new features that Microsoft has been preparing for its consumer operating system had better be ready to shell out some bucks."
"Microsoft is working on another version of Windows 98 Second Edition, adding technology and eliminating bugs that appeared in the maiden release. Called StepUp, the latest SE package is designed for consumers who are already using Windows 98, according to beta testers."
"But users will have to pay for Second Edition StepUp, whereas Microsoft had previously indicated that the upgrade would come for free."
