This problem goes back a long way. W95 worked pretty well, but the first version of W98 was pretty awful. The second version of W98 was pretty good, but WMe was about as bad as it gets (or so we thought until Vista). ...

After that came WXP, which so many people still use, as it worked well and met consumer needs...

Again, just to keep the record straight - Windows XP did not come "after" Windows ME, it came after Windows 2000, which was in turn a successor of Windows NT.   Windows ME came "after" in terms of time, but not in terms of the lineage of the code base.

While Microsoft was selling Windows 95/98/ME which came from a DOS-based 16-bit heritage, they had a completely separate line of 32-bit fully multitasked operating systems which grew out of their failed collaboration with IBM on OS/2.
