did Windows ME fail?

"Gartner Dataquest estimates 10 percent of PCs sold this year will pack Windows XP compared with 11 percent for Microsoft's earlier Windows Me. Both operating systems sold on new PCs for about the same amount of time, but Microsoft released Me during a stronger sales cycle for new computers."

I think this supports his argument, we'll eat whatever MS lets us eat. We all can agree it sucked... but they sold more boxes of ME than .... (insert any non MS OS and a many MS ones if you only count the year(?) they marketed ME at the home user)
