One more thing, I thought ME's reputation was for shoddy stability and installation, not so much security?
Well, I'm no expert. However, I think one of the reasons Windows ME didn't have too many is likely because it doesn't run as many services as Win 2000/NT/XP... I was reading that a while ago in some book, sorry I can't remember which one. They said something like Windows 9x doesn't run as many services so it is more secure on default install than say Windows 2000 would be.
Besides, I used to run WinME, I know what its like. You spend more time rebooting than anything, so I guess there is less of a chance of getting hit with something anyways. :P

neways, just my Canadian two cents...
