What kind of pc do you have?? The hardware requirements
for XP are higher than for ME. To run XP 256mb memory is kinda the min. with 512mb the sweetspot. It depends on what you are using you PC for. ME is 8 bit DOS based, XP is a 32bit kernal OS for the most part much better stability. Even thought it needs more memory it handles it much beter.
Most of the problems with SP2 had to do PCs that were not updated or had spyware and virus on them before the update, and certain applacations wouldn't work with it. So far I have updated 12 PCs to SP2 without problems. The only one I did have problem with was for a friend
who it turns out had upgeded to XP from ME. So if you go to XP do a clean install. John
Presently I have Win ME and is ok. I'm tempted to go to XP but have been hearing some 'REAL HORROR' stories about it and especially with SP2...Is there a REAL advantage to do the switch or not and just hang onto what I've already got til I'm forced to.? Any views R appreciated.
