An analogy: if you buy a TV, and then later decide that you want picture-in-picture, or high-definition reception, etc, then you'd go out and buy a new TV to get the new features. And this is perfectly acceptable. On the other hand, if you bought a TV, and the thing simply didn't work, yeah you'd buy a new TV, but you'd never buy from the same manufacturer simply because you'd feel like you got screwed. Why is it that we have the expectation of quality in tangible products like TV's, cars, etc, etc, but not in software?

This is actually a really bad analogy here. You are implying that either win98 (with its lovely memory leak) or firestarter doesn't work, which is utterly untrue. You are also implying that win98 and XP are the same, which they are not (btw, after I installed my first piece of hardware and setup my first lan with XP, I kissed that POS known as win98 goodbye forever). I understand that nobody likes giving $$ to MS (hell, I hate the bastards), but I don't think that one $100 upgrade (you can find it less with a bit of work) in 6 years is unfair here. There will always be people like you, refusing to upgrade and making game companies take longer to develop products for the rest of us. This is, again, a main reason for companies to abandon PC for consoles, where they don't have to deal with all the OS compatibility crap. Seriously though, how long do you really expect win98 support to last? Your system has stability and speed....fine; just don't expect to be able to play the latest and greatest games for long.
