Windows Me??? wow, is that the lamest product name ever? previously, my vote was for "the webster" (which dell smartly re-named). who are the ad wizards who came up with this one?

Oh god, that is stupid. Just saying it out loud is annoying, it's trying to be so damn "cutesy." I have a beta of the Millenium OS (ugh, windows me), but I'm afraid to run it on anything I have.

That would be proof that they learned nothing from Bob.

Now, now, there's no reason to go around spreading bad words about Bob, Microsoft's best product ever. It's great! It's all I use! I'm confused by your fancy "menus" and "program icons". I don't like your high-falootin' techiespeak, but I love Microsoft Bob... it's almost like I'm walking around my own house, picking up objects in the real world! And boy, do I love that cute pooch, my fun and affectionate doggy guide! He's almost as great as that dancing paper clip who helps me when I need to write letters to my local newspaper!

I can see the customer testimonials now... "I've already been Microsofted... they may as well Windows me too!" Just for fun, I registered the domain. Anyone have ideas on how we could hype this puppy up a bit?

To me or not to me? Maybe a Shakespeare spin. Hamlet.
