[POLL] Favourite Version Of Windows 9x

Postby MajorSky17 » April 18th, 2016, 10:01 am

What's your favourite version of Windows 9x and why? For me, it's very close between 98 and ME. 98 is very special to me because it was the first version of Windows that I used (98SE, to be exact). However, I do have a very large soft spot for ME mainly because it has my favourite Windows name, boot screen and start up/shut down sounds. :) What about you?

(See the original thread at the old forum here.)

Windows 98 is my favorite operating system and it is very nice. I've got it on my old machine before it was gone. Some programs (particularly MS-DOS) are only compatible with Windows 98 and I occasionally use that OS in a virtual machine.

Windows 98 all the way! Very nostalgic OS for me. ;)

I never actually owned Windows ME, but I had friends at the time who bought PC's specifically for it. I think they came to regret that decision. They had a lot of problems unfortunately, and I managed to hold off for a few more years and ended up getting myself an XP machine. 8-)

Since Windows 98 was released, Windows ME is the only major release version of Windows I have never personally owned. (Expect for Windows 2000, but I actually used that during school on a daily basis at the time). I've had 95, 98, XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10.

I like how I was not the only person to put ME down. The only problems are ones they could have easily fixed, and some people have even made programs that fix the problems, so using ME can actually be applied to everyday life if you use it right.

Windows 98! Out of the 3 it's the easiest to install (ME crashing all the time and 95 requiring *something*). Firefox is also half supported on 98 , last time I checked

Yeah, when trying to install 95 you would always come to the conclusion of you must have lost a file in the floppy disks.

98 is better when just being simplistic and a grand piece of the 9x.

I Hate Windows ME crashes you like to watch a video on Youtube of Windows ME (2000) With an Prank to make fake Windows ME and 7 Crash. Title is Mum tries out Windows ME (2000) [Prank Included]. My favourite version of 9x Series is Windows 98 Second Edition.

Have to go with 95 because it was the first operating system I used and I loved every second of using it
