Like IBM?  IIRC, they were shipping NetVistas [possibly Thinkpads,
too] with WinME.  *Tsk* *Tsk* Isn't that like the pot calling the
kettle black?

Seriously, though, I didn't pay a dime for this notebook.  I got it
for free for winning an employee contest at the place I work.

As a general rule of thumb, I usually don't upgrade until SP2 comes
out.  Windows2000 has its own issues, which I won't elaborate on.  As
for XP, I don't know about anyone else, but I find the XP window
manager to be abyssmal.  I hate all that damned color and the menus
are all wrong.  I don't need any of that crap, as it looks like it
would frankly be fairly resource intensive.

*Sigh*, if only it were possible to go back to Win98SE, which [IMHO]
was the most stable version of Windows to date.  Unfortunately,
Compaq has not backported its proprietary drivers [the WinME drivers 
don't work on Win98SE].
