^The truth. Seemed like I would get BSODs every other week when I had it. It also had a tendency to lock up for no apparent reason, so power resets were a regular routine.

Got alot of bluescreens with Win98 (original), then when i started using SE it was much better.... But as 7 pages of responses say: ME was really bad....

98 is fine. ME is terrible.

ME is based on 95, which are both terrible. 98, 2k, XP, Vista, and 7 all stem from NT, which was good.

Actually the Microsoft formula is they produce great operating systems in each alternate versions.
post #97 of 106
ME was the only OS I had any real trouble with,
but thats because I skipped Vista all together ( XP64 --> 7).

ME would fall over itself while falling over itself in the process of falling over itself.

Vista ended up being pretty good,after I tweaked it.I had my Vista 32 system starting in less than 30 sec,with a standard HDD and only 2GB RAM.To be honest I don't notice any difference in 7 other than a few graphical changes.Benches were identical.

you'd honestly would have to be blind not to realize vista was a step forward and xp is well, ancient there isn't a whole lot of differences in vista and 7, most of the changes were cosmetic, with a lot of services pushed to the back ground to make it appear faster at boot...i was an early adopter of both vista and xp, and out of the two, i can say being an early adopter of vista was a much easier transition than it was going to xp.

xp when launched was plagued with problems, that took MS a few years to fix, but once they released SP2, it was a pretty decent, albiet, ancient OS already at the time. it did its job, now its time for it to be properly retired

actually windows 95/98/98se/ME were all apart of the 9x family, they used the 9x kernel, XP was the first NT based for the average consumer desktop.

cosmetically there is a bit of difference between 7 and vista, but underneath, they are both rocking the same kernel, and the same services...its amazing what people will "buy" into if you bat your eyes at them and blow them a kiss...

yeah granted, 7 did improve on a few things, but nothing i would consider "mission" critical, most of it was superficial like bootup times (but then again, i wouldn't call pushing 70% of the services to the background processor is considered a "drastic" improvement, yeah gets you to your desktop 30% faster, but then you are still waiting for all of it to load in the background.) with windows 7, i'm still waiting about 2 minutes before my internet connection is loaded.

these debates about which windows os version is better, none really, they all pretty much the same thing, with improvements here and there, the newer it is, the more modern it is, with the latest of the goodies. windows 98 might've been awesome back in the day and might be considered one of the best, but i'd be a fool to run it now days as my primary OS.

as for xp, yeah it is dated, yeah it needs to go quietly into the night, but right now, there might not be an option on the books to go to vista or 7, there was a lot of time in between the launch of xp and vista/7, there is a lot of compatibility issues that haven't been fixed (doubtfully ever). software development is expensive, and if the source isn't available due to it being proprietary or the company no longer in business, then business's have no alternative but to continue to run XP till it is financially viable for them to commission a new development. but your average desktop user, time to upgrade!
