5 years is a fairly long time.  AFAIK Windows 98 was released in
... 1998 (surprise surprise), with a second edition in 1999.
So 5 years ago it was 13 years old.  There's a significant different
between 13 years old and 18 years old, so there's a good chance that the
number of users of Window98 is fallen sharply during this time.

Of course, I don't know whether it has, nor whether the intersection of
Windows98 users with Emacs users has fallen sharply.
