I think the question is not whether it runs on Win98, but whether anyone
wants to support it there. I'm not aware of any dependencies on an NT
derivative operating systems, and I don't anticipate any in the future.
Vulcan, specifically, has no special dependencies that would preclude it
from running on Win98. But that doesn't mean I have the slightest
interest in even trying it.

Why would anyone want to run Win98?
