Speaking for TSVN, I can say that you won't find many people who still
use Win98 or NT4. When we first dropped support for those in TSVN, we
had *some* people still requesting it (I think it was a total of two
people who complained). And that was three years ago.
It would be a small problem if you would drop support for win2k because
some companies still have those around.
