AGN 3D heeft een review geplaatst van Win98SE. Naast de gebruikelijke bugfixes blijken Bill & kameraden er per ongeluk ook nog een paar nieuwe features aan toegevoegd te hebben:
I've had this new "SE" version of Windows 98 installed for about a month now, and overall it runs well. Before this update came out, I was still using the OSR2 version of Windows 95. The original version of Win98 didn't really offer anything above what Win95 OSR2 had so I held off on the upgrade. This new SE version does however have useful features like ICS (Internet connection sharing), Direct X6.1, IE5 and some new drivers. The install time of Win95 is barely 10 minutes compared to Win98's 30 or so minutes of install time. The offset for this increase in time is that Win98 will be ready to use when it's done. Win95 on the other hand, requires updated motherboard drivers, drivers for nearly every peripheral, Direct X6.1, IE5, Wingate, Winsock 2, the DUN updates, and a slew of other updates and additions just to bring everything up to date.
