Does anyone else prefer ME over 98?

Getting old software/games running on older hardware.

I prefer ME because I'm not a big DOS gamer and with kernelex the Microsoft Office compatibility pack will install but only works for Word documents but its something!
Where are my other retro New Jersey Folk?

Another Me preference does come in a bit when i'm a little nostalgic for that Y2K high end experience suffering with PCI sound and nVidia hardware though... I did go back to Win98SE later that 2001 as I did miss DOS gaming already, but Live's dos drivers didn't quite satisfy that much anyway
by the way, DOSBox is not for running Windows 9x

When I used ME I found it quite stable but never used it on a main setup. My go to was the original Windows 98 I customised it to look like w2k and added usb support, Had very little issues with it. It acted as a family gateway for a number of other systems. Still have it but not used it for quite a while.
