I would have, but they got to the stack before me. However it looks like I'm the only one who got something good out of the deal. "First is the worst, Second is the best"

Yeah. Lol if it had 95 I would put ME on it. I have like 5 OEM copies lying around my room somewhere. They are still shrink-wrapped from Microsoft, and coincidently another thing we were going to throw away and I ganked.

I wouldn't install ME for personal use, I'd much rather use 98. ME is terrible, unless it just hated me. I formatted the drive I had with ME and installed 2000 on it.

I got a free laptop with 95 on it once. It didn't come with a power cord however, and I wasn't going to pay $40 for a new one, so I just dissected it. I got another free laptop with 98 on it w/ power cord, I reinstalled Windows and I sold it for $40.

Lol yeah, ME is bad, but it can't be as bad as 95. 95 has caused nothing but problems for me.
