Is it worth $20 to upgrade from win 98 to 98SE?

I have no major problems with my system, but I'm thinking about upgrading since I've lost (don't ask...wifey related) my WIN 98 OEM CD. Is $20 reasonable considering all of the other OS floating around?

nope

the major upgrades from 98 to 98se are security holes anyways

if you want more security holes, there are alot cheaper ways to get them

buy a dvd!

A good many of the updates in SE are available for download on Windows Update...

More compatibility with different Firewire drives. For example, the ADS Pyro firewire requires 98SE or newer.

well since you do not have a copy of windows 20 bucks to get win 98se and then you will have a copy might be worth it. is this just the upgrade disc or the full install disc?

the upgrade would not be worth it -the full install I might get to at least have a copy in case of an emergency needing a reinstallation of windows.
