Should I Get Windows ME?

Recommended Posts

Does scan disk work?

NO

Does Defrag work?

NO

Does System Restore work?

All of the above work fine for me, you must have had a dodgy copy. Iv'e been using Windows Me for three years and Iv'e never had any problems with it. I guess Iv'e just had a bit of luck with it.

Hey everyone, I'm happy to say that I didn't take the computer to Windows Me but i did upgrade it. I found a copy of Windows 2000 Pro for $50 CND and a used store. It was still sealed and everything. Put it on with no issues and it's great! THANKS!

ahhhh nooooo!! dont install it, its absolute garbage! It lasted 3 days on my system, and thats because for 2 days of it i had no other copies of windows to install. 98/SE is far better than ME, i would suggest Windows3.11 before i suggest ME ;)

Do people even read threads anymore? :huh: At least the last page, just to see what's going on? Or are they even aware of the pages, just posting based on the first post, or even the title? :blink:

:| your joking right?........

if you are serious.... god help you...ME was like a quick creation by Microsoft, it was not fully tested and had sooooooooo many bugs. I sadly got Me a while ago, 2 hours later downgraded back to 98... it is not good.. and even microsoft dont like their users using it, as i said it was just a quick creation...

If you want use it.. i am sure because of the lack of availible features.. you will downgrade

ok ill start of with

i have seen a lot of crap, i have bought a lot of crap, i have actually used a lot of crap b4 and i tell you what, Windows ME has to be the most biggest peice of crap i have ever used :no:

i dont wanna sound to hash but that is my understanding about it, i think i saw blue screen more then mouse and lockups more then movement, does that answer you question. I got if free with my computer and i went out the bought Windows 98 se, keep 98

Thank god you didn't get ME. It's a terrible OS. Really buggered up my Mom's laptop.

PS to Gameguy, I read the thread, just wanted to throw in my $0.02.

Just like the previous 85 replies. Windows 2000 first choice, Windows 98 SE second choice, Windows ME isn't a choice- avoid it at all costs.

In case the previos 85 replies wasn't a good indication

Windows ME is teribble.. (some else that things the same, answer= DON'T do install it)

If you run Windows update, you make it even more worse.

Still not understand why Microsoft did release that version.

Please stay by Win 98 or go to Win 2k.

but i am happy you did not install Windows Me (Y)

:yes:

Once I installed WinXP Pro on Oct. 26, 2001, I threw my WinME disc in the trash (where it belongs)!
