Strange thing about ME.  On a percentage of installs on a percentage of
hardware profiles, it will act like the best operating system every
made.  However, when doing the math, a percentage of a percentage isn't
much.  I figure the quality installs of ME is about 0.00001%


I guess I was lucky and within that percentage. But here's some of the
issues i have with WinXP: I tend to "fix" computer for friends and
family, and with Windows XP i have seen many errors, when after
tickering and Googling, the best solution seems to be to just
reinstall. I was able to _never_ reinstall my Windows ME, and still
have it working well. Also, with ME, i could simply copy drivers and
.inf files to where they need to be and have thigns work. That simply
is not possible with WInXP.

To be updated...
