I love titles that blame us, but I guess you are just venting your
disatisfaction with WinME/

I agree the Windows command line sucks, and I agree we didnt take it into
account. But we did and still do jump through inordinate hoops in the batch file
to make sure that Ant runs under win9x, which is a lot harder than you think, as
the .BAT execution sucks badly too. 

The rest, we leave to you

Can I suggest.

1. ant | more  to get paged stuff
2. 4DOS command shell (very nice add on)
3. run ant inside an IDE 
4. antidote (feel free to help)

Also, what was it you expected? That we should recognise that win9x and suddenly
add a fancy gui with scroll bars just to make your life easier? But what about
everyone running ant as part of some batch mode?
