Just another computer guy who loves the subject, has built several machines, started years ago with a new dual floppy Victor sys2 (dual floppy?) PC for $1200. If I remember right Victors main product then was sewing machines! After 2 days of C:\_ flashing on the screen finally got a virtual drive of several MB going and my excitement today is just as strong for my latest build. This homebuilt contains 3 hard drives each with it's own operating system of Win XP, VISTA and Win 7. It wasn't easy and like most such efforts you learn how to do it wrong before finally getting it all right but everything presently seems stable and I'm very pleased with the results. Yes so far I like Windows7 after giving up on VISTA; and running my 4 computer home network on Win XP only. Now that the grandkids are getting older 12 to 20 yrs and don't visit so often have taken down the network and running on Comcast cable and another on NetZero dial up. Yup. I'm over 70 yrs and still anxious to learn new things so will sign off with that thought and start looking around here! Shel
