    Microsoft is trying to pull a fast one again. Everybody knows that these days the word Millienum means year 2000 right? Well, you and
    I know that but this isn't true when it comes to Microsoft's newest
    version of Windows called Windows ME (Millenium Edition).



    You've probably heard of Windows 2000 and are wondering what the
    difference is. Well, there's a lot of difference. Windows
    2000 is a decent operating system which is really the current
    version of what used to be called Windows NT. I recommend
    Windows 2000 to anybody who want's a stable Windows platform
    that doesn't crash. All of my regular Windows 95/98 programs
    run on it with no problems. QRZ Runs on it too.



    Windows ME, on the other hand, should have been called Windows 98
    Version 3.0 because that's what it really is. The marketing people
    at Micro$oft figured that this would make it sound old and clunky
    (which it is) and so they decided to freshen it up with a new name.



    So, the next time you hear someone say that they're running Windows
    2000, Millenium Edition, you can correct them, and thank
    Bill Gates for trying to pull another fast one.



    My personal preference score (on a 1 to 10 scale):
    <ul>
    Windows 95 - 6.0

    Windows 98 - 7.0

    Windows 98/SR2 - 7.1

    Windows ME - 7.2

    Window 2000 - 9.0
    [/list]
    P.S. The current edition of The QRZ CDROM runs
    on all of the above systems.



    P.S.S. I give higher ratings to most Unix and Linux based systems.
