    Not realistic, ME doesn't crash! But did we think these were the bees knees when we had them? Going back makes them look pretty awful!

    I'm on ME right now, I anticipated it would be crashing all the time (signature) but it's completely stable; unless I try to do something it really wasn't designed to do at all, like play a YouTube video on YouTube (embedded YouTube video works fine), but I can still access SkyDrive and other browser-feature-restricted online services. Is it practical? Not really but it's still surprisingly agile for a old dottering OS, and that is definitely due to the ever supportive presence of third party software, scarce though it may be at this point...

    ...so, just the OS...I don't get it...
    Sent from Windows ME thru Opera 10.63...just before they crashe

    I have an old PC with ME on it and fired it up not long ago to reminiscence and then thought..."how the hell did I put up with that crap!'

    It has a 5 1/2 " floppy in it and I still have disks for it.

    Oh...yeah...coming from that direction...ouch. I'm running mine on [fairly] modern hardware with 512 MB of RAM, so it's not hamstrung by relevant hardware.
