    I am testing a Win 7ultra machine with a DVI card24" Hd Monitor and the Fire Hose version of Office/Pub ...

    So far so good ... Surfing while Burning a DVD ... LOL

    Only problem will be when I have to give it back ... LOl

    I do like the zoomie thing in the rh corner ... [smiley=bier.gif]

    Win 7 is what Vista was intended to be.
    Allows me to run legacy software that Vista wouldn't.
    A clean install is fast, but after adding antivirus, firewall,
    office software, adobe reader and flashplayer, and all
    the security patches over the last 3 months, Win 7 is
    becoming another slow OS. I prefer my linux box.
    Much faster to boot and websurf with.

    3) Puppy linux

    I carry Puppy on a bootable usb stick and
    use it to diagnose and fix crashed machines.

    Free OS, can be run from a cd or installed as a multi-boot system.

    http://www.xubuntu.org/


    Another free OS, coded to be small and fast!

    I use this OS to salvage old win 98 machines,
    those with limited hard drives and ram.

    Now that you bring it up (whats better)

    Do you prefer "Geek or Nerd" ;D :D

    "Diversified" or "Multifaceted" are both good.   ;)

    Query...

    1) If I can catch, clean and cook a fish
    2) Do my own automotive repairs
    3) Use a bow or blowgun to hunt squirrels
    4) Wear flannel shirts and camo jackets
    5) Don't own a pocket protector
    6) Prefer charcoal over gas grilling
    7) Mow my own lawn

    Can I still be a nerd or a geek?
    Or should I be qualified simply as a Master of Redneck Tech?

                                             :cool:

                                             ;D

    Of course "Opinionated Old Coot" fits too...

    Can't run AutoCad on a mac... :-[

    unless I run Windows in a virtual machine.
    And that gets buggy as heck.
    Not worth the effort....
