Is Ubuntu the answer for Windows 98 users?

Microsoft has now officially discontinued support for Windows 98. This means that no more security updates will be released for the product. As a result Windows 98 machines will be increasingly targeted by malware writers. I’m currently looking at the best options for Windows 98 users and one of the most attractive is to convert from Windows 98 to Ubuntu Linux or its less machine intensive cousin, Xubuntu. I’m currently looking for volunteers to undertake this conversion and write up their experiences for other users. If you would like to participate drop me an email. Let me know your current hardware and your general level of experience – users at all levels are welcome. I’m also looking for some experienced Ubuntu users to do a little hand-holding. Again, just email me. This is an important internet community project and your participation would be most valued.
