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.
One more thing, I thought ME's reputation was for shoddy stability and installation, not so much security?
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...
