    I'm posting this from a pure text webbrowser called RXVT. This is insanely weird. There are no graphics, yet I'm online and writing this on this website?

    It's a bit complicated. I'd rather use a window but I had to try the text based browser out.

    Im running Windows ME, please help me! I get so many errors everyday its not even funny, my reboot button sure does get a workout. Moving up to XP very shortly.

    I also have Mandrake 8.1, but there are some settings I have to change since the refresh rate is too fast, and I dont know how, so Im stuck with ME for now.

    >You missed out on like 40% of Operating systems, if not more...<

    Seriously. I mean, if you're gonna have a poll like this and not give us more choices, then at least put "Other" as a choice.

    I currently boot these:

    Windows 98SE
    Windows 2000 Pro
    Windows 2000 Server
    Windows XP Corporate
    FreeDOS (Gotta love DOS.)
    BeOS 5

    But, I'm currently using Windows 2000 Pro the most. It's an excellent system.

    And you might wanna make a distinction between OS and shell, even on windows. I've seen someone running Windows use the game Black and White as their shell instead of explorer.exe. They also have an irritating version of LiteStep for a windows shell. That and there is always cmd.exe.

    MethodMan, I feel sorry for you.
    My g/f has ME, and untill then I have never had the chance to be tortured by it.
    My lord, what an irritating operating system.

    I had 98SE for the longest time before XP, 98SE wasn't bad.
    The world is waiting. I must leave you now.

    I think you made a mistake, you said windows 98 wasn't bad
