Yea, it is the worst OS that I have ever seen.
Microsoft actually came out with XP EARLIER than expected due to the need to replace the ME OS with another home/office end-user platform as 2000 was mainly for office envirnments.

I have a few computers on my network and the one upstairs is still running on ME. The only reason I left ME on it was that I hardly ever use it. I have a USB adaptor for my wireless network and the damn thing has to be unplugged and replugged constantly to keep ME from not recognizing it. Simple tasks like logging onto AIM can cause crashes and errors. My opinion is that Win2kPro is the most stable windows OS.

XP is basically a design of 2000 made to be more user-friendly and more appealing to the public (with its bubble start menu and stuff), doing this has made it less stable than 2000.

what do you prefer as an OS - Windows 98 or ME?

98 is still responsive enough for the end-user, and large corporations can mass-ghost 98.

I used 98, then 98 SE for years until the switch to XP two years ago. Never have I used ME in any of my machines here at home.

Where I work, many of the machines once had ME on them.... it sucked *** and you probably couldn't get any work done.

Thankfully, they've all been replaced with 2K, XP and some of them - Linux (Mandrake).
