    I don't want to take sides but I suggest reading the before and after paragraph here (scroll down until you see yellow and green boxes). They are good opposing viewpoints...

    If you truly want to compare Microsoft's Operating Systems, you have to divide them into categories - DOS Based, and NT based. Windows XP is based on Windows NT, and Windows ME is DOS based (remotely!). I have proven (perhaps only to myself) that, if set up properly, Windows Millennium can be as stable, if not more stable than other OS's.

    You know, Win ME is REALLY dead. The worse OS ever written.

    Windows 3.11 was even better. lol

    This is hardly the place for this discussion so I'll have my say and leave it at that. You can respond to your hearts content. I have tested Windows ME. I've worked on Windows ME. I've hated Windows ME. I've been working in the computer field for the better part of 14 years and I've seen many changes in computers. I would hesitate to say that ME was worse than 95. Windows 95 was a technological advancement over Win 3.1, but was buggy. Win98 (first edition) was not much better. Of the 9x based OS's, Win98SE was the best one available. WinME, whether due to buggy drivers or not, was still a mistake. They attempted to integrate parts of the NT kernel with the 9x kernel and got one of the most unstable operating system ever concieved. They did eventually iron out a lot of the issues with patches (that primarily removed the NT portions from the OS), but that does not alter the fact that it was a poor decision on Microsofts part to even attempt this.

    Having said that, the NT kernel (from NT4 on up, not including NT3.51 and prior) is the most stable kernel released to date. And with each succeeding OS it gets better. 2000 is better than NT4, XP is better than 2000, XP x64 is better than XP. I have yet to see if Vista will improve on this, but I believe it will. Now keep in mind that I don't use the default GUI of XP or XP x64. I'm just referring to the state of the kernel and the OS in general. I've had my say now and will bow out of this discussion. Feel free to respond if you like. I'll probably read it but will not respond further.

    I just change the look back to the standard Win2k look. I'm not really fond of Luna's cartoonish look. That's one thing that almost turned me off to XP when it was introduced until I found out how to revert back.

    This will be my last post in Daemon-Tools forums:

    Call it "Old-fashioned", call it what you want, but I don't need all the new features of XP to clutter up and slow down my PC. ME is simple, fast, and reliable (with my configuration). Unfortunately, Microsoft will terminate support for Windows ME in Mid-2006. I only use XP because of support issues, and I REALLY wish that Microsoft would make a new OS, that is similar to Windows ME, but "more stable" to please all you critics who have most likely never even used ME, but just go with public opinion. Windows is becoming too demanding as far as hardware, and cost. If someone would make a Windows alternative, that is easily affordable, and supports most Windows programs, I would DEFINITELY go with them!

    MS is becoming the iron fist of power; they know they are getting a monopoly on Operating Systems, and they're elevating costs just out of greed.

    Use Linux, i use Linux and Windows. If i would be able to play all games on Linux i would uninstall windows. I also miss some programs in linux, but there are many useful and good designed open source programs/alternatives for linux. I also miss DT in Linux. If somebody knows an alternative for DT in Linux (mounting mds, iso, cue bin), please tell me.

    Default DAEMON Tools 3.47 & Win9x

    muffinhoo, I'm sorry to hear about you're last post here, I just wanted to add that even though DAEMON Tools 4 won't run on Win9x doesn't mean we'll stop forum support regarding helping people use DAEMON Tools 3.47 and all of its capabilities. Copytrooper also mentioned something along these lines if you're interesting in searching the forums.
