WinMe is the worse OS I've experienced and this one I really hate.
The best OS in order personally are: Win2000, Win98, WinXP and WinME. I never experienced WinNT4.
Win2000 is a great OS and hardly any problem.
You may find me as strange rating WinXP lower than Win98 and this is based on my experience as terrible.
Not as bad as WinMe though.
I can’t print using WinXP as not compatible with the laser printer and this is one of the reasons why I am using Win2000.
You may not agree with me and these are based on my experience. The bad points using WinXP: restrictions in access, too much demand on the computer, the slowness and incompatibility of some programs.
I know WinXP has a much higher RAM recommendation of 256 MB and this is something to do with it.
Microsoft can’t please everyone and this is a fact of life.
Win98 is a very good OS and I am still using it.
This is an old computer, 5 years now and near to its end. Microsoft recently stopped supporting Win98. I still occasionally get updates from Windows Update for Win98. The updates are mostly for WMP7, IE6 and now recently the DirectX 9.0b on security.
I wouldn’t update this old computer any further as too old and its RAM and CPU is too low at 64 MB and 380 MHz.
I do find WinXP Home Edition not so good and I think WinXP Pro would be much better OS.
My next OS is likely to be after WinXP. I just wait and see.
