    now your bringing back old memories..
    ME was just a stopgap to 2000/XP, most notable feature was "System Restore" that made it's debut. Many were complaining about ME but worked just fine for me. Probably shortest living windows ever.

    I've still got my Windows 95 and 98 CD's stored away somewhere. I've thought about throwing them out a couple of times but just couldn't do it.

    Win 95 I have in original packaging, waited in Toronto for it to start selling til 2AM. There was also 97, 97 SE after it, those I did as upgrades but i think I still have .iso from them. Also have DOS 5. something diskettes as well as 3.11 on them and all are converted to ISO files too. Keeping "Free DOS" and Dr DOS too. Also have Atari 520ST with bunch of diskettes for it but haven't used it long time.
