Windows ME Final

  • I only specifically mentioned IBM; given that ThinkPads were generally high-end machines (there wasn't really a low-end series in the IBM era), I guess that a home-only OS may have been out of the question. But again Windows 98 was (mostly) home-oriented when compared to Windows 2000.

    Ironically Me does run fine on my T41.

    Are you sure? My HP Pavilion 6735 has Windows ME, and it also has the original COA / Original HP OEM Installation of Windows ME.

    May I ask, sure of what? He stated IBM hated WinMe, not HP

    OwO ok then.

  • Why are all the screenies BSODs?
    For all those who hate ME:
    All windows versions work without any problems, maybe your hardware is faulty or you were running software not designed for ME.

    The thing is that every Windows 9x/NT OS does have many good configurations on which you will have near-perfect stability.

    Unfortunately some configs have their quirks and that applies especially to older stuff with only win95/98 VxD drivers on Windows Me. My IBM 300GL has varying issues with the newer 9x operating systems so it's running win95 (and it's a PIII).

    Stuff that came out after winme was released (Pentium 4/M+ or Athlon XP+) will have mature WDM drivers built with Me in mind and on such hardware it should be quite stable (like my ThinkPad T41).

    @Windows 2000 I think I've seen you in another forum :wink:

  • @win32 I am MCpillager12 on BA, fyi.

  • Very stable on vpc2007.

    Infact, some pics.

    I never figured out why peoples says Windows ME was evil. I used to have had no trouble in the past.

    ME seems to be more responsive under a VM, or maybe it was just me.

    Same here.

  • Can we get some real screenshots?

    If the staff can be bothered. Besides, it's really just a quick rehash with Windows 98 with Win2000 aesthetics thrown in. Nothing special really.

  • People had this much trouble with ME? I've never had any issues with it.

    All depends on your hardware set-up and compatibility I suppose, in where history had repeated itself when Vista came about years later.
