Windows ME

(Windows Millennium Edition) An upgrade to Windows 98 introduced in 2000. Windows ME added more support for digital cameras, multi-player Internet games and home networking. Its connection wizard stepped you through Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) for all the machines on the local network. Unlike Windows 98, you could not restart Windows ME in a full-screen DOS-only mode, but you could run DOS applications in a window (DOS box).

Windows ME was considered by countless users and technical professionals to be the worst version of Windows ever released. While Vista comes in as second worst, Windows XP, 2000 and Windows 7 have often been considered the best.
