Some time ago we decided to compile for "i686" instead of "i386",
i.e. we dropped suppport for hopelessly outdated hardware.

So what about dropping support for outdated Windows versions, too?

    Is there anyone of you, the mingw-cross-env users, who needs
    to provide support for Windows 95/98/ME?

    Are there good reasons for keeping support for those platforms?

Any feedback is welcome!
