I certainly did. WinME was a mistake - I bought the upgrade and it crashed when I first went to install it. I ended up having lots of driver and stability issues, so I ended up going back to Win98SE. As for Vista, I was very happy with it - most games performed faster and it was a huge improvement on the desktop (well, it's what Win7 was based on). It was only really slower systems that had issues with it.
I've bought every consumer version of Windows since 3.1 and being an early upgrader has improved with every release, to the point where I haven't found anything incompatible with Windows 8 yet (undoubtedly there is a lot of software but nothing that I use).
