|Just out of curiosity what apps work in 98se and not XP?

HP 5 SCSI scanner - Drivers will not be updated - HP listed it under "End of life hardware".
Iomega Bernoulli 230 Mb SCSI drives. - Iomega gave me a deal on a 250 Zip. What does a guy do with 2 Bernoulli drives and 10 disks?
Snipper - A Windows based TSR that allows you to capture anything! Text, graphics, icons, then redirects them to ptr, filename, or target device.
CuteFTP Pro - Full software update.
Partition Magic - Full upgrade.
Some of these programs did actually work but the bugs were so bad I did not want to risk losing my data or slow down my work. They are memory hogs and just won't release your memory even with a good memory optimizer onboard.
The upgrades were expensive, the most being a new scanner, removing the Adaptec SCSI card and all SCSI devices. Sure some of these will work with a newer card but at the time not all had drivers or updates.
There are many more programs that just won't work but the above is my highlight. Some others I would have upgraded in time as well but when I migrated to XP from Win 98 SE on one machine, I was totally blown away with the lack of manufacture support.
