Figures.  Do they have the same statement for WinME?  They are so close, it might work well with a newton, though I never tried it.  But looking at that site, it says it can't deal with "Win98 components" so I am betting WinME is also out.  However, if you have a copy of WinME around, can't hurt to try and see. :)

In my opinion it really stinks that they create a emulator that won't work with older OS's which is the WHOLE reason you would want to use a emulator in the first place (other than testing out software in a sandbox or such).  Especially since the older versions appear to have supported Win98.

Perhaps this will spur VirutalBox to get Win98 working better.  While it does install it is slower than a snail in an Antarctic winter and very crash prone.
