  Peterped 13:31 13 Nov 2004

I have win98SE and I am thinking of upgrading to win ME My question is should I or shouldn't I?

The difference is really not worth paying for you would be better of going straight to XP now that is worth it.

If you go to Win ME you need your head examining

I did and I regretted it. Go for XP if your hardware will support it click here

It really comes down to individual and personal experiance.

I have used 98 and found it very buggy I have used 98se and found it ok, I found ME stable and it has system restore.

Having said all that I agree with what has already been said, if you can afford it go for XP,it is the best of the lot.

I seriously would never consider buying a copy of ME, not good after selling P.C systems with this OS for 3 years it was a nightmare.

Win98 is not buggy! I've used it for yonks and very rarely have a problem with it. Apart from that, agree with all the above - stay with 98se or go for XP.

I've just upgraded form Me to Xp, best thing i ever did.. Ian..

Windows ME worked very well for me, far better than Win 98 anytime.

Win98se to Win ME is not an upgrade. Forget it. Personally I wouldn't go to XP either at the moment. I am quite happy with Win98SE.

What about windows 2000 far better than ME, given a choice i would not go to XP.
