For me Windows 8 is by far the worst. Windows Me may not have been the most popular Microsoft OS, but at least it paved the way for system restore and movie maker. And vista isn't that bad once you get sp2 installed

Where are the rest of their desktop OS's?

ms-dos
3.11
95
98
2000
ME
XP
VISTA
Win 7

Windows 8 isn't even out officially yet so how can anyone possibly have a valid reason to hate that?

But to answer your question. Windows ME was the worst OS I have ever used. I would rather go back to using dos.

No, you only included Microsoft OS's that YOU think most people hate/hated! I know lots of people that hate XP.
July 9, 2012 4:16:58 AM

For me, XP. I have used 95, 98, 2000, XP, Vista and 7; 95 and 98 are understandably slow due to the hardware at that time, but XP is basically unresponsive when a problem arises. Task manager freezes, system slows down to a halt, basically when your OS is cluttered, but more problematic than Vista in the same situation. I don't know about you guys, but Vista was fine for me, but I did eventually upgrade and reformatted all my PCs to 7 due to clutter, and for upgrade reasons.
July 9, 2012 5:00:02 AM

Vista was excellent after the service pack, but we did pay for an extended beta which wasn't right.

I skipped over ME and 2000, just because I heard all the complaints.
July 9, 2012 5:09:27 AM

Windows ME

Thank god I was too young to be horrified by it. Though I do recall seeing either black or blue screens with white text appearing randomly from time to time, even when the computer was idling.

My dad took the brunt of trying to maintaining the Dell Dimension 4100 (probably a decade old by now). He later upgraded it to Windows xp after a year or so.

Having used everything back to Windows 95, I have to say that the worst Microsoft OS I have used to date out of your picks is Windows ME. Vista did have some legit issues, but if you gave it more than 2GB of ram, a decent processor and even a modest amount of drive space to work with, it would run just fine.

Having used all 3 preview builds of Windows 8 so far, I will be moving to it on all of my systems as soon as it ships. The new start screen will take some getting used to, as will the lack of a start button, but I'll get over it.

May I ask why you find the upgrade to Win 8 compelling.

I have a laptop running XP, a laptop running Win 7, a desktop running Win 7 and a new desktop that I haven't activated Win 7 on and I am trying to decide whether to put Windows 8 on some or all of them.

ps: I agree that Vista was a good OS with the right hardware. The only OS I truly hated was XP. When it first came out in 2001 the internet was in its infancy and XP was fine. But you know the old saying: fish and OS's stink after 11 years.
July 10, 2012 8:44:40 AM

I ran Windows Me without a single update (no Internet connection) for roughly 2 years. In that time I reformatted several times just to restore the OS to basic operational capacity. Things like shutting down because an impossible task because of annoying little "Close Program" dialogs that never specified which program needed to be closed, and which would re-appear if you let it kill the imaginary program. On top of that, I saw BSoDs almost as often as my desktop.

The 13 people who voted for the other two OSs did not actually use Windows Me for any appreciable amount of time. It is an abomination to software development and an insult to Microsoft's customers that it was ever made.
July 10, 2012 9:02:57 AM

I voted for ME for it was so bad, a lot of people quickly went back to 98SE. It was worst than Vista. At least Vista, as randomizer said, didn't BSOD on every boot.

Far as Vista goes, most of that wasn't the software's fault, but the systems it originally came on. I mean, 512MB of RAM in 2007! Once you got 2GB+ of RAM, Vista wasn't bad at all. It was a radical change, and a lot of people hate relearning their PC's.

Now, until I see the OEM version of 8 running, I don't have any opinions about it. The one thing I'm not looking excited about is the Metro GUI. Since Microsoft Word is the main program I use, I have no need for a touchscreen interface.
July 10, 2012 9:50:01 AM

I don’t hate any of them. Hate is an emotion, and is irrelevant when judging an OS.

All Operating Systems have their place. For User Interface, I currently use Windows 7 x64 on a PC, for several hours per day. My network router probably has a version of Linux in it. Many of the Internet Web-Sites probably run of a version of Linux.

(I would hate to go back to exclusively using MSDOS though.)

In the very short time that I tried it, I didn't mind Metro that much. It was nice and smooth even on my hopeless Atom netbook. In fact most things were quite snappy, far better than XP on the same machine. Most of the Metro applications won't even run on my netbook though (it's 168 pixels under the minimum vertical resolution for most), so it's basically just a bunch of tiles that I will ignore completely before switching to the desktop.

Now using a mouse may be quite different. A touchpad is relatively well-suited to Metro because it's imprecise (especially mine). I have yet to try it with a mouse so I can't make a comment on that.

On a side note: I did notice two rather odd things that are still in the RP. Firstly, power functions are still under Settings when they are not settings. I realise they are probably just trying to avoid a top level menu with only three entries in it, but really, this is just confusing. Secondly, upon accidentally trying to load up the x86-64 ISO Windows 8 told me that my PC needed to be repaired because it did not have a 64-bit CPU. :lol: 
July 10, 2012 10:27:57 AM

ME was an absolute shocker

I bought a machine at the time it was out ... so it was built with ME in mind... but its stability was terrible.
I cant recall the details now... but I just recall being outraged at how bad and Basic the errors were... when 98SE was stable and good.

Made me become an early adoptor for Win XP (got it on day of release) ... and that was an outstanding move :) 

Cheers
July 10, 2012 11:01:53 AM

As people have chosen to make a distinction I will state two different things.

First off in my opinion ME was and will always be the least usable most issue ridden outright dog of an operating system known to man. Ok I admit I have not use every OS known to man so I maybe guilty of slight exaggeration.

Now to the point of the question, I'm going for dislike rather than hate,
I dislike W8 for many many reasons and on many many levels. I have used it and attempted to get on with it, the fact that the final OS is not in existence yet has no bearing on peoples feeling towards it, I submit that it is fully valid to have an opinion on it, enough is know known to form such an opinion after two released beta versions.

So if the question is what's the worse OS you have ever used then ME wins hands down. But if the question is about personal feelings towards an OS then I have to say I dislike W8 more than ME.

I am glad the moderator is keeping this thread open as it contains a lot of useful information for anyone evaluating Windows ME.

Do you recommend running Windows ME under a Sparc workstation/virtualized model? What is the cost-benefit analysis of Windows ME vs. Windows 3.11 for Workgroups? How about volume-licensing?

Btw: be on the look-out for anyone asking legitimate and specific questions about Windows 8. Could be an infiltrator from the Real World.

I've used all of microsoft's operating systems but since i am 23

the ones i have the most memories of is Windows ME.

Although honestly i don't hate it i still somewhat fondly remember the days i was spent using winamp and playing starcraft on that computer...


i am also just impressed by how easily it broke. how it would take 6 or so install attempts to get it ...installed. i remember trying to use a scsi drive with it.

the amount of problems it had.....makes it special to me

He is right.

Windows XP is one of the most loved Operating systems of all time, and after the Vista disaster, Windows 7 was a breath of fresh air, and despite the fact it was rushed to market, it eventually became a VERY efficient Operating System by almost anyone's standards.

I disagree with the inclusion of Windows 8, seeing as how it has yet to be released. If it took Windows 7 two years to get right, so to hold Windows 8 to any standards while it's still in the testing phase is naive.

Other than that, Windows Vista and Windows Me are the two worst Operating Systems of all time, and that's according to the general consensus.

Leaving out poll options because you may not like the outcome is no way to conduct a poll. Either be objective about it or don't conduct one at all. I know plenty of people who preferred Windows 2000 to Windows XP until XP SP2 was released. I know plenty of people who have no problems at all with Windows Vista because they bought hardware that didn't suck.

Every OS has a rocky start, Vista and XP are no exception. There was a lot wrong with the hardware that Windows Vista shipped on and a lot wrong with application developers who took 5 years to get used to the paradigm changes that Microsoft made. Laptop OEMs such as Dell and HP insisted on producing dirt cheap laptops and desktops using bottom of the barrel hardware that was only barely met the system requirements. Many of these platforms used Core2 processors which were inferior to the dated Netburst PCs which they replaced. I use Windows Server 2008 (Same codebase as Vista SP1) on a couple of my customer serving boxes and it runs just fine. I'd upgrade it to 2008 R2 but that would mean shelling out a grand for another licence. Heck Server 2003 was so full of issues that it's barely usable by many people's opinions which makes Server 2008 a marked improvement.
July 10, 2012 1:03:56 PM

Frankly, this poll is unfair. Windows ME should receive 100% of the votes, however most people have short memories, and some people weren't old enough to understand the fail that was ME (or were shielded from it by their guardians); after all an annoying OS that functions is much better than a clone of windows 98 with vastly improved crashing and system file corruption capabilities.

Vista, post SP2 was not bad at all, it's biggest problem was resource usage being too much for the hardware that was available at the time; my primary experiences with it early on were on relatives PCs which had < 1GB of ram, and of course it sucked. It was a mistake, but it wasn't so severe as everyone likes to remember.

Windows 8, doesn't really have the luxury of being history behind it. I'm old enough to remember how much hate and doom was spewed about Windows XP just before launch.
July 10, 2012 1:51:03 PM

Ah yes, Windows Many Errors gets my vote.


Honestly ive been using Windows since Win95 and ME was the worst, blue screens all day.

Ive been using Windows 7 since the beta and for the last 10 months i hardly used the start button. What ever programs i used most i pined them to the taskbar. I hardly went into the start menu for anything. Once Explorer was pinned and i increased my recently used items all folders i normally utilized were always in the list, if i wanted to keep them ill pin them. And if i wanted to see them i used a dock on the desktop.

I use dual 22" widescreen monitors and after trying Windows 8 it is a bit silly that they implemented that Metro tile system. The best thing about windows 8 is Multi monitor support with the new taskbar. I no longer had to use that POS ultramon that always seems to be 1 OS behind on features or display fusion that just made things worse to get a taskbar on each monitor that shows programs that only relate to that screen with full Aero Peak and thumbnail view window interaction.

Now that i think about it, just give me the Windows 8 taskbar on Win7 and they can keep Windows 8. :bounce:

It's not that I entirely disagree with you, it's just that there is something you seem to be overlooking/ignoring. Plus, I just feel like before you insult someone you should perhaps try and see things from another perspective.

The OP created the poll to see which of those three the voters hated the most. If he was interested in opinions concerning other versions of Windows, he would have included them. He is simply wishing to see which OS, out of those three, is hated the most here on Tom's.

The nonsensical responses pertaining to the limited number of options would be akin to me creating a poll asking which game is more demanding, giving the choices as Crysis, Metro 2033, and BF3, and have to deal with some annoyance arguing that the poll is invalid for the reason that it left out, say, the Witcher 2.

And before you, or anyone else, attempts to differentiate this poll from the example I gave above, I would dare say that your time would be better served actually attempting to be helpful.
July 10, 2012 3:17:08 PM

I have been loving this hate for windows 8, do you realize that the metro interface can be completely customized as to what shows up and what doesn't.

Personally vista wasn't all that bad either so long as you didn't have a prebuilt computer with crap specs.

however, ME was pretty terrible
July 10, 2012 3:45:47 PM

As if you guys haven't given Windows NT any love! ... that's the one before 2K for those of younger years.

Windows NT had epic stability; principally due to having virtually no compatibility with any hardware :D 

Customer: I'd like new computer
Tech: Great!
Customer: I'd like all current generation hardware
Tech: Awesome!
Customer: It must run Windows NT
Tech: ... FML ...

On a more serious note, It's not really fair to judge v8 before it is out but I do feel they might be jumping a step to fast with the metro interface.

So my nominations of epic fail are:

9x kernel - Windows ME, fastest to boot, faster to crash)
NT kernel - Vista, it would have been NT but at least it didn't pretend to work then randomly screw you over.
July 10, 2012 4:07:20 PM

I'll give windows 8 a benefit of a doubt until its been out for awhile... but I'm not going to buy it (have my reasons), win7 is doing fine and will work for me till the next OS or two comes out.

I havent tried windows vista, but the furor over it being a hog and what not made me stick with XP for 7 years.

I will say windows ME was the worst, but my experience with it was not terrible, it did bsod more than XP and Win7 for me so thats all I can really say about it :p  and my memory of any other issues with ME are pretty vague since it was almost 12 years ago when I had it on an IBM pc.
July 10, 2012 4:28:13 PM

Well you cant buy W8 really anyway. I'm not sure but I think its an old charter or something. The pattern is pretty solid, you skpi every other release then get the next one once the first SP has been released.

So it goes like this

ms-dos = Get
3.11 = Avoid
95 = Get
98 = Avoid
2000 = Get
ME = Avoid
XP = Get
VISTA = Avoid
Win 7 = Get
Win 8 = Avoid


Simple really. that has stood a lot of people in good stead over the years.

May I ask why you find the upgrade to Win 8 compelling.


First and foremost, the bootup and shutdown times. After several attempts, Microsoft finally seems to have taken a major step in the right direction. The big change they made as outlined in the Building Windows 8 blog was how they decided to hibernate the kernel session instead of fully shutting it down and then reloading it from scratch when the machine was turned back on by the user. This results in significantly faster startup and shutdown times because of much less data to dump and read back to and from the disk - regardless of whether it's spinning magnetic media, or an SSD.

Second, I've been exploring a lot of the power user features that they built in. They were kept out of the way, so that if you didn't need them, you probably wouldn't stumble across them and potentially break something. But they are accessible enough that they are easy to point out to a non-technical user when I'm trying to support them. My favorite thus far is the context menu they added when you right click the space where the Start button used to be (the elevated command prompt option almost by itself is a godsend as far as I'm concerned).

Third, the new Start screen. Many may be staring at their screens in disbelief right now, but I have to say that despite it taking some getting used to, I actually like it. Once you realize how it is laid out, it actually makes more sense. The only part I don't like is the extra click required to get to the desktop when you power up/restart/resume the machine. Not a huge deal overall, but can get annoying over time.

And last, I'm not the least bit shy about breaking out the Windows Easy Transfer wizard, backing up my data, and reinstalling Windows. It's so much easier now than it was back in the XP (and pre-XP) days. I used to dread wiping a machine out because of the time it took to get it going again. Not so much anymore. I can wipe out my main desktop at home and be back up and running within 2 hours. An OCZ RevoDrive 3 certainly helps with this, but so too does the install time, and performance of a fresh install of today's latest operating systems.
July 11, 2012 12:55:49 PM

Thanks for that. Here are my comments and questions:

-Are there any security issues with hibernating the kernel session? Does maintaining security of the Kernel session require Bitlocker to be in use? (Otherwise could you read the contents of the Kernel session offline and use the info to break into users' accounts?)

-Time will tell whether performance will degrade if you never shut down the OS. Right?

-Personally, after I upgraded to an SSD and UEFI, I am ok with the startup time of Windows 7.

At the end of the day I will probably upgrade one of my four machines:

(1) Old laptop with 512MB RAM: Linux is the only option, and having access to Linux is the only reason to keep this laptop.

(2) Crappy Laptop with 1.8" hard drive: not worth $40 upgrade price. Will upgrade to Surface Pro instead.

(3) Media server computer: who cares whether it's running Windows 7 or 8? It's just there to play music, home videos and Youtube on the TV.

(4) Flagship media creation desktop: I want the latest and greatest on this one, so I will upgrade it to Windows 8 as soon as possible. BUT ONLY if all current software is FULLY compatible with Windows 8.

I will probably get a Surface (the pro model with the real Windows 8, not Windows RT) when it comes out.

Not accurate. He stated "This is just a poll to see which OS users hate more."

Had he said "Which of THESE THREE OS do users hate the most", what you said would be accurate but it would also be even more readily apparent how nonsensical the question is.

I have never used Windows ME, so I do not have any feelings about it (not that I would have feelings for an OS, but that is another story).

Yet I recognized that ME was not a worthile upgrade over Windows 98, which is why I went straight from Win 98 to Win XP.

Anyone who says they hate Windows Vista probably hates the hardware they were running it on. I upgraded a computer from Vista SP1 to 7, and could hardly tell the difference, except that the interface was more finely tuned.

Also hate is a really stupid thing to ask about. You can ask about performance, security, stability, price, interface, how productive it made you, but asking about "hatred" and including only three OS, one of which is not even released, is a childish prank.

I am most grateful for this forum. I have enjoyed browsing and learning from all of you folks that post here on Tom's Hardware forums.

I am a bit hesitant to move to Windows 8. I also believe the software might just be too "green" (wet behind the ears type of green) for immediate and smooth use. I game, therefore, I am reluctant to change my operating system until I know a replacement will allow me a smooth gaming experience as well.
July 11, 2012 5:40:01 PM

I ran Windows ME without a problem till XP came out, ran XP without a problem till Vista came out, ran Vista without a problem till Win7 came out. I think it boils down to having the right components in your system. I go all the way back to
Windows 3.0, 3.11, 3.22, 95, 98, NT and 2000. I found out when I got the best components it eliminated most of the
problems. I love Vista, never a problem, just a memory hog. Win 8, I will wait.
