Your fav version of Windows 9x?

Recommended Posts

98SE. No wonder I've used it as my main day-to-day OS for about 15 years! :yes:

:blink:  But... but... then, why reply to this thread if all you have to say is "never used 1.0 to 9x/ME"? This is, hands down, the most off-topic reply I've ever seen!  :blink:

Sorry.

My favorite versions:

  • Windows 95 (all versions without "webby" IE desktop, which is everything except maybe OSR 2.5 (though that can be fixed by simply removing the IE installer files for the IE desktop, if I recall))
  • Windows 98 SE (98 FE is okay, but kinda buggy and somewhat less compatible).

ME is okay, but too much like 2000 for me to really care (given the choice, I'd rather run 2000 because it's based on a better architecture). It does have some novel features (System Restore, Movie Maker), but XP has much better versions of those, which makes the ME versions almost pointless (other than the fact that they're basically proofs of concept that demonstrated that such things were possible).

Looking at ME as an updated 98 SE, the fact that DOS mode is crippled kinda ruins that (and, as has been mentioned numerous times in this thread already, 98SE2ME pretty much takes the best of ME and transplants it onto 98 SE).
