No Win98 DOOM 3

In today's (unusually late) DOOM 3 newsbit, a post on PlanetDOOM confirms from Activision that DOOM 3 will not run under Windows 98 or Win98SE, but that Windows XP or Windows 2000 will be required.

OK a slight eidt
Win Xp advantages
can edit files GREATER tan 4 gigs (vs. limit of 4 for 98SE)
CD wirting software built in
but already have many cd writing progs
Nero easy Cd etc. and like them better
has (PRO version)good security but can get this with 3rd party soft with 98SE

etc. etc.
yes better mem but I will not go over 1 gig for quite a while

so if you added up the hours below likley at least 70 hours and could be much more.
no justification for this many hours.
so a quick install to antoher partition/drive could be done in as little as 2-4 hours even with a few drivers if needed
i.e. if you have the latest video and or other cards.
so if you really want to play the game
but not update everything
- do the minimal

still not fair that ID did not allow it to run on 98SE unless there is some good reason. does anyone know!
please only answer if you know whatg you are talking about.
I have a free (bought by client) but it is unfair for the rest of you.
And those of us who are not students and 70 hours is worth between $3500 ($50/hour)and $14,000 (200/hour)!!!!!!

Hope this helps

Oh and by the way the "are" in "I are a genius" was on purpose.
Obviously it should be "I am a genius".
That was supppose to be funny.
