    Not really, but I did have the "pleasure" of fixing a laptop for a friend last night that had the once-enormously-popular and ground-breaking OS installed. ;) I didn't realize ME was installed until I booted the thing up and saw the most horrifying startup screen to ever grace the PC. Needless to say I recommended an upgrade to XP... especially considering that she can get one from her school for $5.00.

    Hey, I had ME installed on one of my Daughter's computers. It ran great, it didn't crash or anything. :eek:

    It was that way for about 6 months. Then I stuck in XP. :)

    lol, I loved that operating system too, it's greatness always made me feel all fuzzy inside :D


    ...or maybe that was the chemicals of rage coursing through my body each time I tried to do something complicated...like open Calculator...

    I'd use WinME (slaps mouth) [​IMG] coz there are still some progs that don't run on WinNT. :eek:
