Should I move from ME to Vista?? ME is better?? RRS feed

  • Question

    Hi,

    I have been running Windows ME for a long time now without any issues.  I'm now thinking about getting a new computer, but every one is telling me that Vista is as good as dead.  They say it has major issues and uses a lot of RAM to try to be more like the Macintosh, and I hate the Mac. 

     

    Basicly every one is telling me to stick with Windows ME because it is better than Vista.  But I was told the same thing when I bought my computer with ME on it back in the day.

     

    Any thoughts???

  • Thanks,

    I was thinking as long as I have an up to date firewall and anti virus on ME I should be fine.  But now none of the newer protection software supports ME..

     

    XP on new hardware would probably rock.  It just amazes me how quickly my computer is running ME compared to the VISTA boxes I have checked out.  And the hardware today is light years ahead of my computer.

    Thanks for info.  I hear that Windows 7 is already getting ready to roll out the door to replace Vista.  Maybe I can hold on to my Win ME box for one more year..
