Windows Live Messenger doesnt support ME. At all. I can guarentee that no one will make any attempt to get it working on ME as that version of Windows is highly reguarded as junk.

As for apps you will have to find really old apps that are for 98 or so. That will be it. As most of the current software only support 2000 and XP you are going to have a very hard time finding a lot of stuff.

ME is the worst operating system ever made. There is no reason why anyone should be using it.

ME is the worst. It had the worst driver support. It crashed more than 95 did. It was more unstable and had the most updated to it. Yeah ME is great.

Basically you are out of luck. Almost nothing was made for ME. Not even the software makers liked it and therefor basically skipped it and went right to 2000.

Well that all depends. What type of software are you looking for. From there use

http://www.google.com

and find out if it is compatable with 2000. Almost everything that is XP compatable is 2000 compatable. So you shouldnt have to hard of a time.
