Activewin.com heeft als een van de eerste sites een review gepost van Windoos 98 Second Edition. Hier heppie een stuk:
The majority of bugs that were in Windows 98 Gold have finally been put to rest, but that doesn't mean that Windows 98 Second Edition is bug free. Any upgrade of an operating system is likely to have some problems crop up no matter how small. I have personally noticed one problem so far which is far less than the original Windows 98 had.
Those of you with USB devices will be very pleased to hear that Windows 98 Second Edition has far, far better support for devices, and Microsoft have fixed the annoying restart in MS-DOS error that cropped up when USB devices were plugged into your PC.
