AMD vs Windows ME

I've heard that Windows ME is specially designed for Intel processors. Is that correct and if it is, what kind of problems do you get when installing Windows ME on a computer with an (Duron) AMD processor.

  1. I have an athlon classic 500 and i run windows ME and it runs fine. I haven't had any problems with it. Never crashed once. I would assume the duron would work fine also. I've never had a duron so i dont kno. I've even had Windows ME running on Cyrix processors and it works fine.

    Im savin up for a Cobra!! Hehe!!
  2. Ditto the above.

    I have Intel P3, Celeron, Duron and Cyrix (ack!) systems running Win Me.

    Can't say I like Me, but it works (ish) on all.
  3. Whoever told you that really owes you a beer for being a rookie...

  4. I've heard that installing any msft product with a duron, and logging in as a Netscape or Real Networks employee will cause the machine to self-detonate. The guys at underwriter labratories (UL) said they clocked an 8000 meter/second detonation rate, which is consistant with nuclear weapon grade detonators.

    Scary......
  5. ROTFLMAO!

    I think I just threw a clot, I laughed so hard.

  6. Windows ME is probably designed for Intel processors. But it'll run on any x86 processor.

  7. How about this...Windows is designed for x86 processors...

    That includes both Intel and AMD

  8. How about this... Windows is designed on Intel processors.

    Which is x86, which (luckily) includes AMD.
