    Windows 8 Arrives

    False. Windows Me was 5% to 25% worse than windows 98. I wrote a comparison. Even games such as Half Life ran slighlty worse on windows ME. Windows 98Se was awesome in the days. As for windows 8 its just another reason to duel boot. Run linux as the main OS and windows 7 to play games.
