Please. It isn't even a debate, and calling someone a troll for reciting their actual experience is just stupid.

Gateway, Dell, HP...all of the major manufacturers either partially or completely switched back to Win98SE as their "default" consumer OS mere months after ME was released. They did that for a very real reason...consumers couldn't keep the OS working well, even on brand new machines. Gateway did it within 3 months. Tech support couldn't keep up with the complaints and it was costing the manufacturers a shit ton of money. The first few months before the switch back the retail stores were taking brand new machines back from new customers and switching the OS to 98SE.

It is all fine and dandy that a few people remember it well, but pretending like that OS wasn't the catastrophe that it was is just idiotic. If you have to be some kind of IT guru to operate an OS targeted at the mainstream, it is a failure.
