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.
<end pointless story>

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...

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
