So why didn't you stay with ME ass wipe? It can still be purchased. You will never admit your wrong and that XP is miles ahead of ME. Now please go back under that rock you crawled out from under.

I also think Win 3.11 was the best OS ever developed. It's design and =
quality that makes a good OS. Win ME was the pinnacle of it's design. XP =
fails the test in so many ways.

One example is nslookup. It does not support the /? or -help commands. =
Half of the command lines use unix notation (with a few going 100% and =
being case sensitive) while the rest use MS-Dos notation. Some commands =
have MS-Dos smartness with parsing (eg only one switch starts with a =
then /a is all you need type for /all) while others are really dumb (if =
it says /averylongthing then one must type it in full). A second thing =
is when right clicking toolbar buttons. MMC and Help Viewer programs =
place commands, useless commands at that, where the standard windows =
commands should be. A third thing is the partial removal of right click =
edit menus - all go or none go.

ME was the best design. XP has many heritages, Unix, NT, Win 3.1, Win =
9x, OS/2, MS-Dos (and earlier versions could run programs written for =
any of them), and CP/M. It was designed by the designer of minicomputers =
(we're micocomputing but the terms are meaningless now) OSs and is =
really a mismash.

However Win 3.1 was just great. Unlike component software (makes =
programmer's life's easier) everything was designed to meld with =
everything else. We haven't had that since. Even ME, the best since, was =
flakey.

Tell me, do you lack personality or a brain? Since you started the name calling and want to fight a battle, I assume you are just a common moron who thinks he knows it all. I have had techs tell me when I had ME that I would be better off going back to 98
SE. And they were correct. Since you think it is such a great system then get off the XP site and go to the ME site where you belong. Although I don't believe you belong on any help site. If you are not here to help, why are you here? And I was wondering
oh great one, are you running ME or XP? Since you say it is the best, are you still using it? Your wasting my time, I try to help people when I can because I get help from time to time. Jerks like you ruin it for all! Nick

You didn't answer the question. Why did you buy XP when you could still buy ME? Is it because you know that ME is miles behind XP? You are the one spreading lies and calling names. If you had nothing to add to the original question that was posted and coul
d not offer any further info to the fellow who put down the post, you should of kept quiet. Given the things you have said and your lack of common sense and dignity for others, I was wondering how your house burned down? Was it the cigarette you dropped wh
en you passed out from being a drunk? Or was it your neighbors setting the house on fire hoping you were in it?

One you are spreading lies. I'm calling you on it. MS gave me 5 copies =
of XP, 4 x Pro and 1 x Home. It wasn't my house and I'm waiting for the =
inquerst to find out who lit the fire. My Nephew does blame his =
neighbour, the police don't believe him as only him and his father will =
be witnesses at the inquest.
