>From what I've been reading, WinME is frequently less stable than Win98.
What features do you see in ME that you can't get from 98SE? Do you need
MS's latest Media Player or Movie Maker? I wonder if ME's primary reason for
being is to nudge businesses toward Win2KPro by making 98 appear to be a
dead end. I use DOS, 95, 98, NT4 and 2KPro for various purposes. So far, I
haven't seen a reason to even try ME.
When I visited Dell's "Home and Home Office" pages, WinME was the only
"choice" I saw, at least on the entry level machines. However, when I went
to Dell's "Small Business" pages, I had a choice between ME and 98.

Can you elaborate on this? What kinds of things is Windows Explorer doing?

Well, I like it. But the Windows Explorer does not work right and Microsoft
does not seem to care very much that it does not.
I really hope I am the only person with this problem.
But I suspect that others have it too.
