    this is interesting. i still remember using Windows 3.11 and thinking it was great (i didn't switch to Macs until OS X).

    also, it seems that Windows 2000 and ME were worthless (which is what i've heard from users of those OSes).

    I like when you combine Windows CE, ME and NT to get
    Windows CEMENT !

    My parents still use ME. Seems to work ok. When it dies or is near death, I am planning on a mini or iMac for them.

    I didn't really use DOS/Windows (1-3.11). My first MS OS I used was NT 3.5.

    Back in the days of NT 4, I used NT at home and OS 7/8 at work. Being a "mac shop" we had our share of "mac zealots" who we in the IT department used to enjoy riling with talk of NT being more stable than Mac OS. Back then, UNIX and NT are what I considered my prefered OS's. Now it is OSX. So to "celebrate" the end of XP (launch of vista) I turned off my old XP box for the last time and said "adios MS".
