Prices for WinME

For Windows ME (Millennium Edition), which will not go on sale until September 14th, the gold status has been achieved and the first prices have been fixed. However, this is the delivery date in the USA, it is assumed that WinME German will follow approx. 2 weeks later. As already suspected, the prices are based on Windows98, i.e. US $ 109 for the update and US $ 209 for the full version. A special, cheaper update for Windows98SE users should not be available.

The main features of WinME will be Internet Explorer 5.5 and Mediaplayer 7. Incidentally, the progress from Win98 to WinME is as follows: It is greater than from Win98 to Win98SE, but less than from Win95 to Win98. It remains to be seen whether the few new features will suffice as a purchase argument. Incidentally, the successor to WinME will finally consist of a pure 32-bit Win-NT basis and is codenamed Windows Whistler 'Personal Edition'.
