95/98 is in use: Microsoft licenses downgrading from Windows XP all the way
back to 95 (<http://support.microsoft.com/kb/931858>, as accessed 6-13-09,
bottom) (upgrading often includes a legal prohibition on reversing the
procedure). The downgrade option suggests that the market share in 95 or 98 is
significant, since they'd hardly spend money to develop a legal product
(licenses, etc.) for just a small customer or two. I suggest two main markets
want to downgrade that far back: institutions using applications designed for
9x; and developers. The existence of either market implies availability, and
likely use, of older browsers like IE 5.x today is not so rare.

Thanks.
