It is really Win 98 3rd edition and there is not that much usefully new in it. I might try it when it has been out a while but I really don't like this "non Dos" route Microsoft is taking. They seem to be making the OS "safe" for the average user in the same way we have been almost universally forced to have front wheel drive cars nowadays when you buy anything new other than a luxury car...... more "idiot" proof
No, all of the software that work on Windows 98 will work in Windows ME. I have ran all of my games and applications fine in Windows ME. The only problem that I had was the scandisk feature of Norton Utilities would freeze the computer.
until they make a home windows version that is stable, i prefer to have dos around so i can take the back door to fix win if i have to, had to use dos the other day to fix win on a laptop in order to get win and the drives working.
i thought for a couple of weeks winme was good now i'm seeing more problems come up that i didn't have with 98, i definitly have second thoughts about winme and wouldn't put it on my own system. been using it on 3 different types of machines the bugs are surfacing, printing, peer to peer network, etc.
