What, Where am I bennifiting?? almost knowhere, I mean it is nice to have the sleek look, but is that worth all of this, so now I ask that question to you. GO.
Hi B-80,

Vista will be the OS to use in the very near future. By then you'll have it working great. I say in the very near future, because according to my friends who own a computer business and store, Windows XP disks are not being produced anymore and haven't since about February.

They have memos from M$ stating that there still are a lot of XP operating System disks still out in the market place, but Vista is what and where Microsoft is heading...

My bet is that XP will not be supported after 2009. It's a shame that Microsoft can get away with this... Perhaps a good Linux version for the masses will come out. And by that I mean no interfacing with "terminals", su this or ls that. Just plug and play. I love and use Firefox 2.0 Won't go back to IE!!!

Just my two cents. Take care, :-)
