Microsoft Bob wasn't a version of Windows either, just a kid's shell for Windows 3.1
Worst version of Windows is definately 1.0, with 2.0 running a close second. You didn't list them or even 3.1 as an option though (curious since you did list DOS) so I guess I can't vote. Oh ok, out of those I'll say ME.

It was like --->
Now I have a poll as empirical evidence that indeed it is the worst.

I agree completely with the fact that Windows ME was terrible, in any day and age. I remember being able to use a built-in utility to cause a memory leak within ME. After doing this about 10 times, Windows would complain about low memory and recommended that I shut down some programs... even though I had none going.
As for those of you who voted XP (except those that misunderstood the poll) I think that you should take a closer look into what is generally needed by people in an OS. If you need high-end graphics development, leave this forum and go buy yourself a Mac. If you need something that can do just about everything decently well, XP is a great OS. While the original release had it's problems, Microsoft has been quite good about rectifying the problem with Windows Update. As for those people who b***h and moan about the fact that there are many security holes and that XP needs so many anti-stuff programs, a computer is just like any machine. It needs to be maintained. Defragging your hard drive and scanning your computer is just like changing your oil in your car. All in all, XP is the working computer equivalent of what car manufacturers are trying to do with the (crappy)crossover cars, everything in one convenient package.
As for that "compression bloatware", some of us actually use that. If I've got a lot of files that I need to backup every now and then, and I've got a relatively small 40GB external drive, the compression comes in quite handy. I've been able to make that 40 gig drive look like a 55 gig drive from time to time.
For those of you who still use the command line in DOS, what is wrong with you? Unix dominates the entire command line world, hands down. I know that the server that runs the local coal port here in Vancouver, Canada has been running Unix 24/7/365 for the past 24 years! No crashes, no downtime, just keeps everything moving along at a good pace. Sure, it's only got to deal with schedules and when ships are coming and going, but it works.
Anyways, ME sucks monkey nuts, XP works great.
