RE: filmscanners: scanning/photoshop workstation (long)

Jim please tell me you're kidding. ME was solid out of the box? I got a new
computer last month with ME, and the thing never stopped crashing. I
eventually just upgraded to Windows 2000, and things have been fine ever
since. Now, I was reading a bulletin board at zdnet last night where people
did nothing to bash MS left and right, and sing the praises of Unix. I know
one thing- it's not perfect, but Windows brought computing into the everyday
world, so normal people could use it, and not just programmers who worked
hard to learn Unix or whatever else. Personally, having worked with a guy
who LOVED Unix, I know that if it was a choice for me between Unix and
nothing, nothing would be it.

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
drivers, and some products still do not have ME drivers, but the OS itself
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
Microsoft but I think their operating systems are starting to mature and I
think that will help those of us who use graphics.
