Re: filmscanners: scanning/photoshop workstation (long)

I agree that there were issues with 95, 98, and 98SE but ME was rock solid
right out of the box (purchased last September).  There were issues with device
drivers, and some products still do not have ME drivers, but the OS itself is
rock stable - never a blue screen, ever.  I believe, with the new driver
architecture, Windows 2000, XP, and ME will be even better.  I'm not a fan of
Microsoft but I think their operating systems are starting to mature and I
think that will help those of us who use graphics.
