Chapter 4. What's New and Noteworthy in Windows 98

IN THIS CHAPTER

The world can doubtless never be well known by theory: practice is absolutely necessary; but surely it is of great use to a young man, before he sets out for that country, full of mazes, windings, and turnings, to have at least a general map of it, made by some experienced traveler.

Lord Chesterfield

The whole point of this book is to traverse the seldom-seen nooks and crannies of Windows 98. My goal is to shepherd you through the thickets and thatches of the Windows 98 landscape in an effort to discover new and useful information and uncover hidden techniques. These newfound treasures will let you squeeze the most out of your Windows 98 investment, whether you're a single-copy user or a thousand-copy administrator.

Before setting out on your travels, however, you need to take a moment to get your bearings and scope out the lay of the new Windows 98 land. In other words, before lighting out for the hinterland, it helps if you first get to know the heartland. That's the job of this chapter. Here, you check out all the new Windows 98 features added or changed since Windows 95 first shipped. And if you're upgrading to Windows 98 from Windows 3.x, I'll run through a few concepts you need to know to get up to speed with your new operating system.
