I just found a website showing Windes 2000 (not Windes Me):
Click on Features and Screenshots and you will see a small screenshot 
that shows what looks like 256 colors in the background. This is 
interesting, because the screenshot of WindesMe on 
looks more like 16 colors. Incidentally, GW-BASIC does have the 
capability of using up to 64 colors (16 at a time) on a 640x350 
screen (the resolution of the screenshots I took) with the right 
display hardware. QBASIC has more screen modes with up to 256 color 
capability in 640x480, but I did not get 640x480 in Windes 2000.  

Back to the windes2000 site: click on How to Download and it says in 
step 1 that the file size is less than 2.0MB. Then in steps 2 and 3 
it says you put a disk in drive A:, execute the downloaded file, and 
you have "a disk" (that is, much less than 2.0MB) ready to install 
"in your old computer."

So, I suppose what I have is really a trial version, and the current 
Windes is a little better. I don't believe there's "BASICally" much
