I've been running WinMe since Jan 2002. Runs as sweet as a nut for me.

Why do you ask?

WinME was Billys' First go at a "True" System Restore function, and with it's automatic cacheing, it Can get a bit carried away, gobbling up Lots of disc space! With That turned Off, and being Diligent to Create a Restore Point when progs are installed or with Hardware changes, in My experience, has been an Extremely Stable, and Reliable OS.

Here's my 2 cent take on WinME:

I've installed/used windows ME for quite a time and made comparisons with other windows versions. It's more like a windows 98 with the XP feel. It seemed to me that it was a dry run of the XP environment using win98's technology, plus the tons of drivers that bloats up the disk space usage of the OS. I'd rather be using Windows 98 than WinME. But then again, it's just me... :)
