Windows9x is no more supported?
Quartus II 2.2 SP2  is the last version that supports Windows 98.

Hi Valeria,

> Windows9x is no more supported?
Nope. Then again, if you're doing any serious development, W98 is not really the right platform. Best regards, Ben
Hi Leon,

> why altera doesn't provid QuartusII Web Edition for Linux?
I wouldn't mind either, but they are licensing the GUI libraries from another company and they have to pay a substantial sum of money per copy of Quartus [whatever edition] running at a customer, so they won't be giving a Linux GUI for free. Once the documentation for it is out you may want to learn about Quartus scripting, and then start asking for free Linux Web Edition command-line tools. At least those do not share this third-party stuff. Best regards, Ben

I always find it amusing when people say that older software and hardware are not for "serious" development anymore. Sure there are better systems and software out now, but five year old software and computer hardware do not lose any capabilities. Unlike mechanical devices which wear out and degrade with time, computers run just as well 10 years later as they did the day they were new. I used my last PC with Windows 95 for five years. The real reason I gave it up was because vendors dropped support for 95. Windows 98 is a stable platform and requires less hardware support to make it function well. As long as you can get the software you want and it is still supported on your platform, why upgrade? Win98 still works just as well as it did when it came out in 1999, in fact, better! -- Rick "rickman" Collins rick.collins@XYarius.com Ignore the reply address.
