Windows Millennium Edition, or Windows Me, is the new home operating system for PC's that brings the richness and convenience of the digital world to your home.
Windows Me is designed specifically for the home PC user. It represents the first major milestone towards advancing the vision of the Windows Division and further simplifying the computing experience for consumers.

Windows Me delivers in 4 key areas: The Best in Digital Media; Improved User Experience; Enhanced Home Networking; and Rich Internet Experience.

As with previous versions of Windows 9x, Windows Me offers the broadest support for consumer hardware and software.
