Windows ME is Dos dependent. It has DOS prompt, like 98 and 95. It uses the Win9x architecture, and is basically a badly patched Windows 98. It is very unstable. MS ended it earlier than Windows 98.
Windows 2000 is based on the Win NT infrastructure. It is a more independent system that will have support to 16-bit, with Command prompt, compared to a 32-bit support OS.
It's stable, yes. It works like Windows XP, but the themes, icons and color are still from the Windows ME stuff. It won't mean it's unstable.
The best bet is Windows 2000. Windows ME has been ended on Microsoft's site, so it's rather useless that you can't update it, since no updates are on server from now on.
Get Windows 2000.
