Windows ME

Recommended Posts

Why is often Windows Millenium Edition (ME) disliked by many people?

 

Isnt it a better looking, more stable, better version of Windows 98 SE?

The underpinnings are still MS-DOS if I'm not mistaken. It's a bit late to worry about the reputation of WinMe, does Microsoft even support it anymore? I know they stated Win9x was obsolete and no longer supported, however the laughable thing is Windows Update still finds critical updates for Win98.

 

After going through the Win98 era of format+reinstall every 6-12 months, completely avoiding WinMe due to hellish horror stories I read online, and now WinXP which took me time to like since I initially utterly hated it and still hate it a bit since my old videogames won't run properly on it. I really don't care what the OS looks like. The main features should always be stability, security, and great functionality. The "Mickey Mouse (or Goofy to some)" buttons and menus can come after the thing is proven not to crash due to OS related files.
