I wonder if you buy win95 now if they would give you a discount on a
further upgrade though?

It will only update disks to fat32 that have sufficient space on them free
for it to complete the operation (there may also be a minimum size limit
too, not sure though). Win98 is also noticibly faster than win95. For
most newer machines 130 megs is chicken feed anyway. 4 gig hard disks
only cost like $200 these days. If you have an older machine you'd
probably need a new disk controller card too for ~$30.
