I agree here this is a good point.
I've been a very proud owner of Win95, 98, ME, XP and now Win7. All have given me the best PC experience at the time. Microsoft has gained my loyalty through the years.
ME? Your joking right? ME was like like Vista was to Win7, a sort of bug filled preview of what would become Win 2000. Even years after XP was released, people who posted in forums they were still using ME and had problems were laughed at and told to get rid of it. I used it for about a week when a guy at work gave me a disk, just to see what it was like, and dropped it like a hot potato.
