    Lol, Windows ME is what my father uses... he's very computer illiterate, so I don't have the guts to tell him he's running an even crappier version of Windows 98 (even though ME was released after 98)

    You have no idea how freaked out I was when I read the title. Windows ME is the crappiest OS I have ever used. Granted, I had a friend build me a custom PC when I used it and he screwed up with the cooling fan, but with the combination of hardware malfunctions and OS crashes... I saw a blue screen at least 10 times a day. That and it was... just... horrible....

    Anyway, I would also love to see a screen shot of windows ME running on a MBP. And to any windows users reading this who have not used ME, you just don't understand the level of suck that windows ME attained. I have to use windows all the time at work, and I have no *real* problem with windows, and I have even had a good experience with Vista. So, you should believe me when I tell you how bad windows millenium edition was. I'm at a loss for words to describe how often that OS crapped on my face.

    Windows ME was essentially Windows 98SE with all of the updates applied and a few features carried over from Windows 2000. I have no idea why anyone would ever purchase a computer with Windows ME when Windows 2000 was already available and was much, much more stables.

    Ahhhhhhhhhh hahahaha! Great thread!

    I read the title and went "Normally I just troll, but I HAVE to stop this person from making the biggest mistake they could make with their MBP (or any other machine for that matter)"

    Good thing it was just a joke :)

    I would upgrade that pc to xp since me is not supported by microsoft and it is danagers to use a os that is not supported anymore since you won't get more updates.

    W2k was originally meant for enterprise use; I don't think Microsoft extended the license to home users until after the Me backlash was sufficiently huge (Vista backlash isn't succeeding in prolonging xp, though).

    No, his dad's actually pretty smart for being so dumb. Think about it: would you rather design viruses for the most worthless Windows release out there (and be forced to use it to do so) or for XP/Vista, which people use?

    Windows ME is probably the closest Microsoft has gotten to OS X in terms of security.

    Windows 2k pro was a pretty good OS. By far the best Windows OS imo. Never had problems with it.


    ME was the "tub-girl" of windows. (dont google that if you don't already know what that is...)

    The only reason to do this would be to run Worms Armageddon w/o the XP patch! :)

    I am trying to install Win 95 version b on Fusion for ***** and giggles if someone could find me a win95 boot floppy img file. I believe it needs to be a .flp file?

    (I also have the original Windows 3.1 lying around here somewhere)

    The title of this thread has me cracking up. When ME came out I was working as a help desk support person for an IT consulting firm. It got to the point where we would turn away customers running ME who wouldn't downgrade (more like upgrade) to 2000 Professional.
