I realised he was an asshat when he claimed to know people who thought Windows ME was their best OS. No one claims ME as their favourite OS.
The arrogance that pervades that article is nauseating, though. I could barely stomach it. The fact that he ends his article with a suggestion to buy his book just makes it worse.
not to be obstinate...but back in 2001...my wife and I bought a 64 megabyte HP computer from Wal~Mart that came with their version of ME.
Still one of my favorite computers and OS's to this day.
Yeah ME was worrisome..but it pointed towards what would become Windows XP. It took windows 98, added better USB support, and itroduced the nifty System Restore feature.
