Amazon.com Review

With the cutely named Windows Me (for Millennium Edition), Microsoftraises the bar a bit with a new operating system that you'll certainly want toconsider for your next new PC. While this version will probably not be acompelling upgrade for most Windows 95/98 users, the newest member of theWindows operating-system family bundles a number of minor improvements aimed atmaking computing life easier for home users. This upgrade version of Windows Meis available for licensed users of Microsoft Windows 95, 98, or 98 SecondEdition only.

There are several noteworthy features in Windows Me, even if no one featurereally stands out. First, we liked that Windows Me boots noticeably faster. Thereason is that the underpinnings of DOS have been removed from this new release.One result of this absence is that you can no longer boot to a command window asin Windows 95/98 without special diskettes. (Also, don't expect Windows Me tosupport older hardware that uses virtual device drivers written in the days ofyore.) Of course, you can still run DOS command sessions within Windows Me.

Besides removing legacy support for DOS, Windows Me adds several otherimprovements to reliability. The most important is that every 10 hours or so,the operating system automatically backs up its system files (just like Windows2000), thus reducing the chance of your system being corrupted. Windows Me alsoborrows the TCP/IP stack (the low-level code that connects to the Internet) fromWindows 2000, meaning you should have slightly more reliable networkingconnections. For laptop users, you can also hibernate a session and restore itquickly, another feature borrowed from Windows 2000.

The personality of Windows Me also changed a bit for the better. Principally,you can take advantage of personalized menus, which show the most frequentlyaccessed menu choices on the Start bar and hide the others. (This feature isalso based on Windows 2000, but don't worry, you can turn it off.) InternetExplorer 5.5 is bundled here; so is support for working with compressed Zipfiles, which no longer require an add-on.

Microsoft has been touting the multimedia capabilities of the new Windows Me.There's a built-in video editor for video files, and the operating system makesit easy to connect to today's video cameras, scanners, and digital cameras. Butwithout built-in support for Real Media files, these features probably won'tplease everybody.

So what's the verdict on Windows Me? Provided you have recent hardware, thereare some good reasons to upgrade, but most users will want to stick with theircurrent OS. If you are buying a new system, by all means choose Windows Meinstead of Windows 98. Even though it isn't a major release for most users,Windows Me shows that Microsoft has done its homework when it comes to improvingthe computing experience for consumers. --Rich Dragan ...

3-0 out of 5 stars A weird issue
I installed ME several weeks ago and just wanted to comment on one weird thing I noticed.

For some reason, my little Netsonic "web accelerator" program from Netboost, Inc. has stopped working. This program caches web pages and does other things to speed up access and load web pages faster when I'm online. Since, probably due to the quality of the local phone lines, I usually don't get anything faster than 31,200 baud, and most of the time is more like 28,800, this was very useful for me.

However, Netboost's Netsonic appears not to work with Windows ME after having worked just fine with Windows 98 for over a year. I tried reinstalling it from the original downloaded zip file but no luck. The other suspicious thing is that after I completed the Windows ME install, I would get a status message from the Netsonic program that my system would have to be rebooted for it to work. However, rebooting didn't help and I now get this message every time I boot up.

I tried re-installing the program from scratch but this didn't help, I still get the same message. Netsonic still doesn't seem to be working. I find this hard to believe because I doubt this program has anything special that would depend exclusively on Windows 98, and also I can't see that I'm doing anything wrong either in terms of the configuration (there's nothing to configure anyway). As I am a professional NT support person, I usually know what I'm doing with these things (but not always!).

Anyway, overall Windows ME has been okay for me, despite being somewhat more unstable. The main thing is that it boots up and shuts down a whole lot faster, and since I turn on my system several times during the day this is useful. I would say it boots up 4 times faster and shuts down 8 times faster, so the difference is considerable. This is due to the remnants of DOS finally being eliminated.

So far I would have to say ME for me is liveable. I've read most of the other reviews here and it looks like most people are advised to beware of this upgrade. As I work in the support business I see all the horror stories caused by these sorts of upgrades, so I myself am surprised when these things go relatively smoothly as they did with my system, because I'm basically always prepared for the worst. Fortunately, this one wasn't one of them. Overall, however, I would have to say that the average user should think twice about performing this upgrade, and be prepared to back out if there are too many things that don't work anymore or the system seems markedly more unstable. I have a very plain, vanilla system with not much on it from a major brand name (HP Pavilion) that is only a year old, and as I've mentioned here, even I'm encoutering a few bugs.

As long as I'm on the subject I should say one more thing. It is very weird this little program doesn't want to work with ME. Microsoft always gets blamed for these problems but people need to understand they aren't always or entirely Microsoft's fault. It is up to the developer of the program to make sure it is written to Microsoft's standards and technical specifications and follows their recommendations and requirements needed to run with their operating systems. If a developer fails to do this and a substandard program causes issues, this certainly isn't Microsoft's fault. One illustration of this fact is all the driver updates and program upgrades that get issued all the time. These usually aren't to address deficiencies with Microsoft's operating systems so much as problems with the original program code (notwithstanding the fact that Microsoft itself does the same thing--NT 4.0 is up to Service Pack 6).

5-0 out of 5 stars WINDOWS Me Upgrade - Install Clean...
WINDOWS Me operates great, even on 200MHz systems. But, You're going to have problems if you install it as an upgrade on top of your existing Microsoft operating system. I build/repair/upgrade computers as a hobby. My household also has 3 computers using "Me" & there are no problems...EVER.
The TRICK is...(1)Backup your existing personal stuff & wipe clean your hard drive, make sure you have other driver/program disks, you can get updated drivers on their respective websites.
(2)Format & Partiton your hard drive. (3)Run WINDOWS Me SETUP, it will ask you for another version to continue - Put it in CD-Rom, it is only going to read it to verify you have a licensed copy. (4)When prompted, put "Me" disk back in & continue with setup. It will even install some audio & video drivers for you.
You now have installed a clean boot WINDOWS Me operating system & should have no "Lockup" problems. If "Me" is installed as an upgrade on top of your existing Microsoft operating system...YES, you're going to have problems as listed in previous reviews. By the way, my company has WINDOWS XP & I hate it!

2-0 out of 5 stars Yuk
All I can say is, the computer I had with Windows 95 on it is still running strong at my parents house, whilst this one I bought new with Windows ME on it constantly hangs up and crashes.

Thank goodness all the new computers have XP on them now. I can't wait to get one.

1-0 out of 5 stars Waste of money and computer resources
Windows ME is a 'fluffy' version of Windows 98, only it features a massive memory leak - meaning you NEED one of those RAM Boosting programs (aka memory managers) just to keep more then 2 applications going at a time.

I ran Windows ME for about 3 months before becoming completely frustrated with it and moved to Windows 2000 Professional.

This product appears to have been an attempt to create what Windows XP is today, only it failed misserably. This is NOT the operating system for power users or professionals, not that I would recomend it to anyone to begin with.

If your looking for a 'fluffy' upgrade, skip this and go right to Windows XP Home Edition. If your a serious power user, then either go with Windows XP Pro, or just wait until "Longhorn" is released.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great product
This product is a good one. I bought it in order to keep up with the usb technology and it has worked great. It is almost the same as windows 98, but it supports this new usb technology. Mine has never frozen or had any of the problems everyone else is having. I think it is great, but i'm sure everyone else is not lying. It worked for me though and it might work for you. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars The power of Unix for your computer...
Most computer users have heard of Linux. How it's stable, secure and rarely crashes. And this is true. And most know that Linux patterns itself after Unix in structure and function--though not in source code. Linux has risen to be THE alternative to the Windows hedgemony.

But there are other OSs that inherit the same great characteristics of Unix but are not Linux: they're known as the BSDs.

Without going into a lot of history, suffice it to say that the BSDs--FreeBSD in particular, have the same structure and function of Unix and at the same time, are more Unix-like than Linux. This is due to a more mature code base and BSD's historical relationship with Unix. I say "BSDs" because there are three variants available: FreeBSD, OpenBSD, and NetBSD. Of the three, FreeBSD is the friendliest and the most desktop-ready.

FreeBSD has many of the same great programs that Linux does but the difference is to be found under the hood.

In Linux, the kernel is really "Linux" with a bunch of programs from the GNU project sitting atop of it. But with the BSDs and FreeBSD in particular, the WHOLE OS is one monolithic system--so the system is tightly integrated and its packages work well together.

Another key difference with the BSDs: the version releases are farther apart. This is because the BSDs are concerned with stability--not necessarily "cutting edge" packages. The result: a very stable operating system.

There are some things to watch out for, however.

Although many of the same desktop environments and programs that are found on Linux exist for FreeBSD and the BSDs, they do not have the wealth of software available for them that Linux does. This is because of the way BSD is developed (not by many different programmers as Linux is but by a team of individuals who decide what will and will not be included in a release), and because it's not as visible as Linux is right now.

But thanks to the BSD porting system and its Linux emulation layer, many of the same programs found in Linux can be made to run on FreeBSD and the BSDs in general. However, it does take some know-how and skill to make this happen. Linux is definitely easier to use and is better supported than the BSDs are in the software/applications arena.

With this said, I believe that, eventually, the BSDs and FreeBSD in particular will begin to gain in popularity as they match Linux in both ease of use and support.

In the meantime, if you're looking for a stable system and want to try something different then this is the OS to choose. Its stability, security, and close relationship to Unix is as good as it gets.

Highly recommended as a server or desktop.

5-0 out of 5 stars FreeBSD 5.2 is a mature, professional operating system
I use FreeBSD 5.2 on three separate computers, one personal and two commercial web/email servers (as well as several V4.9 and V4.6 server computers). It is easy to install and packed with features. It works with almost any software and hardware. It will run pretty much any Linux program, as well as many Windows programs via WINE (but don't think you are going to run graphically intense Windows games like Battlefield 1942 on it -- that is not what it is made for). Many folks think it doesn't work with P4 Hyperthreading, but it does. For me, the strength of FreeBSD is threefold: (1) It is extremely fast and stable. It uses virtual memory better than Linux or Windows. The TCP/IP stack is THE industry standard. (2) The "port" system is easier and more flexible for add-on program install than the Linux "RPM" system (although RPMs can be used as well). (3) Things are laid out in a very intuitive and usable fashion, without a lot of clutter. The only problems I have run into after numerous installs have to do with the X-Window graphical interface to the OS. Sometimes this has been a little tricky to set up. I have to admit that I tend to use FreeBSD with good CPUs and tons of memory, but crappy old video cards because the machines are usually used as business servers where video means nothing. I recently installed 5.2 with a new 64MB NVidia MX420 card and the X-Window system set up very easily. If there are any other negatives for newbies, the default is to not load support for sound cards, and loading sound card support is not trivial.

Some Linux distributions (SUSE 9.0 gets kudos here) are slicker, especially when it comes to the ease of setting up sound and the X-Windowing system. However, most folks using FreeBSD are not looking for a Windows alternative, but rather are using it as an extremely competent business back end server, or as a flexible and fast high-end workstation OS.

I cannot say enough about this OS. My 11 year old son uses it, so newbies shouldn't be put off too much by my comments on sound and graphics here. Semi-pro and pro computer folks who are using Linux should definitely give it a spin -- after you load a few "ports" instead of "RPMs" you will be grinning from ear to ear. Experimenters and hobbyists will find thousands of programs that are professionally designed and rigorously tested and ready to install.

If I had to live with one OS, this would be it. My servers are typically taken down by DSL issues or power outages before this OS locks up. It is a better OS than Linux or Windows in my opinion. I recommend reading "Absolute BSD" by Michael Lucas if you get serious about this OS. ... Read more
