Windows "I have a confession to make, I used Windows Millennium Edition and I liked it. That doesn't stop me making fun of it however. At a time where there was still a separation between consumer and enterprise operating systems, Windows ME was at the top of its class. What a lot of people forget or don't even recognize to begin with is that Windows ME is actually a rather innovative and forward-looking operating system. Instead, almost everyone focuses on its reliability problems which can be largely attributed to the flaky and inherently unstable Win9x kernel."

Actually, ME did run ontop of DOS. There were just programming measures that disallowed one to boot to DOS. It's possible to hack said measures and boot to pure MS-DOS 8.0. It didn't emulate DOS.
