    Literally the evolutionary dead end of Windows! MS screwed it up so much you cannot upgrade to 2000 from ME.

    I'm more impressed at the fact someone has managed to run ME for 13 years!

    Most were lucky to get 13 minutes!

    You know, I'm leaving it down there. I just vacuumed the PC (was full of sawdust)...

    EDIT: Just a thought but the last time that drive was checked the pupils using it were born...

    I liked ME. It worked well for me for the 2 years I used it. Don't think I had to reinstall anything during that time!

    See if you can find a WinZip trial on it, so it can tell you that you're on day 4328 of your 30 day trial.

    Hmm

    Windows ME
    Windows Vista
    Windows 8

    Drop "Windows" and re-arrange to form:

    ME '8 Vista
