Is Win 3.1/95/98 officially dead?
Posted on 1998-12-29
Judging by NT's new "Windows 2000" name, is it safe to assume that the old Win 3.1 -> Win 95 -> Win 98 is officially a dead end? I have not heard any real notice to that effect, but I do not follow NT closely since I am not currently an NT user, so I may have missed it.
If the old Windows lineage has reached its end, what about the Win32 API? Although most Windows 95 API calls are the same in NT, some are different -- in particular, for process/task info Windows 95 uses ToolHelp32 (which I call a lot) while NT uses PSAPI.DLL calls.
Thanks in advance...
