    Windows ME stands for 'Windows Millenium Edition', it is one of the many versions of the Windows OS released by Microsoft before Windows XP and Windows Vista editions. It is widely regarded as outdated and rarely used in the present. Fore more details about the OS, read more at Wikipedia, follow the link provided in the source.

    To change the OS, there are many options to choose from, ranging from the latest Windows Vista / XP to Linux distros such as Ubuntu / Debian, depending on your System Configuration and how much money you can spend.

    In my opinion, if you are using a relatively old computer, and are using it only for business purposes, surfing internet and storing documents you should change to Ubuntu Linux OS. It is FREE and can be downloaded from the website easily with a good internet connection. It will suit most of your needs.

    Ubuntu also has inbuilt software packages such as 'Open Office' similar to MS Office, music / video players etc..

    If you want to continue with Windows, you must update your Computer hardware to latest configurations for optimum performance and buy a copy of Windows Vista, the latest version of Windows. This option will cost you a bit of money but you can continue to use a familiar OS and run all the latest softwares.

    I would suggest doing some online research about Windows ME, but even with that, I would recommend Windows XP over Windows ME any day. It's more secure, has more software available for it, and will run a lot better and a lot smoother on your computer. Hope that answers your question!

    it sucks.

    I had it on a P3 933 with 1 gig memory.

    It locked up repeatedly.

    If you do get the machine be sure it has a gig of memory and put XP on it.

    Better yet search on ebay and see if you can get a better machine for the same price.
