    XP is very expensive in my opinion for an Os.

    Price is all relative, you ever have to buy a nt4 server license or terminal services client access licences for clusters that serve 1000's of people - now thats expensive.

    Angry Windows ME? KILL IT!!!

    I agree with you. I ran the beta version of Windows ME before it came out, and it rendered my computer totally unusable. That's unacceptible even for a beta version. Everything (and I mean EVERYTHING) gave me illegal operation errors, and more often than not, it wouldn't come out of a screensaver. I couldn't leave my computer from fear that it would die while I was gone.
    If you want a good OS, get Windows 2000. Security and stability are great. It's even better than Windows XP (which I have also beta tested).

    If you don't know what you're talking about, don't say anything. Windows ME and Windows 2000 have almost nothing in common. They serve entirely different purposes.

    It's also extremely outdated. I would recommend Windows 2000 instead.

    boo hoo

    ME is stellar for games and pics but nothing else.

    The 'show thumbnails' concept is second only to the fact that ME treats zip files as almost normal directories. That is really cool considering how much time you save. I have had the BSOD only about a dozen times in the last ten months. That must be a world record!

    format /s grrrrrr. how could they do that! those bastards!

    for years I have debugged computers using boot disks and now suddenly they take the priveledge of doing it automatically away from me! #@$#%$

    calm down...Ahh okay you still can make boot disks on a winME only system but they are crap. I suggest keeping that old 486DX that you have lying around in working order with 6.22 on it.
    Tsk Tsk that \'vB Code is ON\' is really tempting me.. No bad prof.! BAD!

    Re: new information about WinMe

    Seems like everyone who has had any exeprience with WinMe has known it is a piece O' [insert swear word] for well over a year now.

    WinMe = Win98SE with new dress, confusing similarity to Win2000 in menu navigation, and some bugs they had forgotten to put in Win98.
    Know this..., you may not by thyself in pride claim the Mantle of Wizardry; that way lies only Bogosity without End.

    Rather must you Become, and Become, and Become, until Hackers respect thy Power, and other Wizards hail thee as a Brother or Sister in Wisdom, and you wake up and realize that the Mantle hath lain unknown upon thy Shoulders since you knew not when.
