upgrading to Windows 7 from XP

  100andthirty 08:49 21 Feb 2009

there's an article on the news pages talking about upgrading XP to Windows 7. It says that Windows ME was a technical failure (true in my view!) and so MS issued Windows 98SE. This last bit isn't true; Windows 98SE predated Windows ME by at least a year.

Note to author....... check facts!

and I apologise for the error - not much more I can say, except that I'll pass the information on to the appropriate person.

Well, that's a very speedy response. What can i say except to mangle a well known saying....."to err is human and to apologise is devine"

I am with the rest I also liked ME far more stable in my experience than 98. Not as good as XP obviously. I am now using Vista on my new laptop and I like Vista, stable, fast and easy to use.
