Well, there's system admins with skill like that horror guy and then there's Beavers and Prezels...

I know I am going to regret attempting logic with you, but let 's say for argument's sake that you're right and not being an admin with the requisite technical skills is the cause of my issues with ME. Is that the mark of a good OS intended for mass market consumption - you have to be a tech savvy admin or the like to get it working stable? Patently ridiculous. I was able to run 98 SE without many issues, did a clean install of ME on four separate occasions, had issues upon issues with it, went back to 98 each time and had no issues (at least by comparison to the train wreck that was ME). Maybe that makes me less tech savvy than you but it does not make ME a good OS.

Vista on the other hand was indeed largely a victim of a bad first impression with the early unoptimized (or non-existent) drivers. Currently Vista is rock solid and zippy. ME is not in the same category by any stretch.
