A US magazine has named 25 June as the day Microsoft will release the gold version of Windows 98 to a waiting world.
According to the report, Windows 98, complete with integrated Internet Explorer browser and support for the Universal Serial Bus, will start manufacture in mid-May, with Microsoft set to announce the date next week.
But the date of release, if true, is still subject to the US Department of Justice. It may ask Microsoft to release two versions of the operating environment, one bundled with IE and one without.
Microsoft refused to comment on the speculation.
