  1. I honestly think I’m the only person who had good luck with Windows ME. I had one PC in particular that *hated* Windows 98. No matter what I did, no matter what drivers I used, no matter how I configured it, it would constantly blue-screen. Installed WinME on it, and it ran like a champ. {shrug}
