Off-topic: I think the Windows ME period of my home computing history lasted all of 3 hours. Spring 2000, if I remember correctly, and I installed it fresh on my homebuilt computer.
When I tried right-clicking a file inside of Windows Explorer → copy → right-click in blank area of Explorer → paste, the Explorer shell screamed bloody murder telling me "Cannot paste file, it already exists!" (All I was trying to do was duplicate a file in the same folder. Every other OS I've ever used [including other variants of Windows] has allowed me to at least give a different name for the new file.)
I couldn't wipe the hard drive fast enough to rid my PC of that vile, contemptible trash.
