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."

It is Windows ME, an acronym for Millennium Edition.

It is an acronym, but the e is lowercase for aesthetic reasons.

It can be both. It's magic that way. Just like NT Technology is kind of redundant and isn't at the same time.

Seriously, who could possibly care about whether the e should be uppercase?

Because the point is that it is a typo that should be corrected. If someone spells Linux like liNux it would be corrected. Or BeOS spelled like BEOS then it would be corrected.
