Funnily enough, six months ago I bought myself a spanking new 600 MHz
machine with Windows ME, and hence have been diverted from the list too.
No... I'm not saying goodbye! I think that there's still a future for Calmira,
and probably it needs to evolve into the 32 bit world (as a low resource,
high-functionality, best-of-all-worlds shell... not with the same design 
of course). Incidentally, contrary to critical belief Windows ME is not  a bad
improvement on 98SE... it's more stable and less prone to mash your data/disk
when peeved. Ironic though that it's taken Microsoft all this time to give us
something roughly approaching a useful operating system :)
