I never had windows me so I cant say anything about it. I went from win 98 to xp. It sounds like you have an older computer. With windows me maybe 7 years old?
1. Why did windows crash? Is it a software problem or a hardware problem. Did you try to install Vista? Vista probably will not work very well on a older system. I think it is too bloated.
2. Are you looking for an operating system for an older system? There are several linux distros for older systems. I know of http://www.xubuntu.org/
. It is the cholesterol free part of ubuntu which I think is the most popular distro. Slackware also has the option of the xfce desktop. There is also damn small linux. I know nothing about that one.
You may want to start a new thread asking which distro would go with your system. You will need to provide more details on your system. You will need to provide cpu speed and hard drive size.
