No, I don't, but I had people running Emacs on Windows 9X just a couple of years ago or so.
Anyway, the argument (not mine, Richard's and Eli's, I think) has been that there are people, mostly in third world countries, with no access to modern hardware or the possibility to upgrade to newer Windows. The counter-argument is that they can run older Emacs, of course. Perhaps. I don't really want to argue one way or another, to me whether to support Windows 9X or not is decided by whoever bears the burden of maintainership.

Yes, I did misunderstand him, or yes he said what I think and you disagree? (I'm assuming the latter.)
