Let Windows ME rest in peace!
Why do so many people in this forum pick on Windows ME? I've used all Windows platforms from version 3.0 through Windows 7, and ME wasn't as bad as you said it was. It depended on how much you loaded onto the system, how much memory you had, your swap file, etc. I have an old Windows ME PC that I bought in September 2000 that still runs like a champ today (Dell Dimension 4100) that has 512 MB of memory, a clean install (February 2008,) and, from the time I push the power button, I am able to use my desktop in 15 seconds flat. I kept the installation clean by limiting what I install, don't connect to the Internet (obviously,) defrag, and do basic PC maintenance. It's great for running a quick Excel spreadsheet using good old Office 2000, or a document. Shutdown time is FIVE (5) seconds!
