WindowsMe: "It's the bug fair"
A very unflattering judgment that adds to bitter complaints about Microsoft's ability to really face problems "In the past with every bug report – the developer still complains – Microsoft sent feedback. Now, however, it is not even possible to understand whether or not they read the emails I send them ”. The worst problems would seem to be in networking, which simply doesn't work in any way. "In some stages of development – Microsoft executives are justified – we disable some features as part of the test program." Microsoft also denies having revised WindowsMe release plans that remain fixed for the end of the year with a beta 3 available early next month. Windows Millennium Edition in fact the successor of Windows 98, the first software exclusively reserved for the consumer sector. Microsoft, which had predicted WindowMe as a total rewrite of 98, has gradually reduced the number of new features and greatly reduced the ambitions of the new operating system that initially had to focus on supporting multimedia applications, gaming, remote networking and home networking. To date, nothing more than a simple upgrade of 98 with some refinements and a new version of IE, 5.5.
