Why I think Vista is equivalent to ME:

- They introduced some new concepts, but the implementation was half-baked and it didn't work right (Upnp, System Restore, compressed folders, movie maker, WIA). At least during launch, but that's when it's most important.
- The above gave it a perception of a resource hog (since most people turned them off)
- They killed some old, but proven and working technology for no apparent reason (real-mode DOS)
- While breaking old and introducing new things, they didn't have the guts to make a clean cut, so neither worked right.
- Most important, none of the third-party programs required/targeted this exact OS version. They were written either for the previous, or for the next version. I guess it means it brought nothing essentially new/useful.
- Biggest selling point was a shiny new interface.
- Was soon replaced with another OS.

The above is not meant to be accurate, just my perception. :whistle:

less hotfixes = less problems = better OS
my personal experience extends to may os's, drdos,msdos,amigaos,beos,linux,bsd,windows 3.11,windows nt 4 and all the future nt versions, windows 95, 95b, 98, 98 second edition, ME, 2000, xp, 2003 server, mac os 9, mac os x 10.3, 10.4, 10.5, vista, 2008 server and a bunch more.
and ME is thr worst ever, seriously, i vividly remember that after a format and a clean install i got a bsod in the first boot with ME, i gave them several chances but there always problems, as well as vista, i'm getting some bsod every once in a while. Windows 7 runs very smoothly though.

I think the worst OS was Windows ME and Windows Vista. Because they try to much being something they are not.
On the other hand, the best versions of Windows were 98 SE, 2000 SP4, WinXP SP2, Windows Server 2003 (SP1, SP2 and R2) and Windows 7. It seems, Microsoft has learned from its mistakes[fingers crossed].

Worst OS : Windows Me (understood)
Worst non-Microsoft OS : MacOSX

Best OS : Windows XP Professional edition followed by windows vista.

In my opinion windows vista ultimate is better than XP but i am simply not used to it. But i have not experienced any serious bug in Windows Vista.
It is definitely more secure, while XP has been a target for viruses for a long time and they manage to find a vulnerability in it because of the enormous number of people using it.

(starcraftmaster @ Mar 2 2009, 12:41 AM) yea windows vista is crap
but win me is fine and good
10 years and still going LOL


Well can't be helped, some people definitely found the experience with Windows Me really good, but the reason remains unknown to me.
And I have noticed that most people who are against windows vista have not tried it, but only one of whom I know managed to find much faults with Vista. There has been an enormous fixes in vista and is reliable.

Windows 7 is missing in this poll.

But okay: 1. It`s not really released yet. 2. The poll is old.
