3) Windos 98 is a virus and pain in the buttocks in itself, and WILL make you have suicidal tendencies upon prolonged exposure to it's shitty self.
Just don't connect to internet.

I'm always playing UT'99 online from a fixed IP, as well as diablo 2 on battle.net; I never had any real issue. Nor that I would exactly care if the retro system gets hacked by an off chance. I have a few snapshots in linux that get the system up and running in a minute or two 😜
Yes, nowadays most viruses must probably only run under NT kernels because of introduced core functions that weren't present on the old 9x kernel needed to exploit certain vulnerabilities. At least that is what I have always thought of this
