    I agree with 'Mac to Mathews' and 'Windows to Hoyt', I just don't want see 'Martin to linux'. Broken, bloated, change for the sake of change..... oops sorry innovation, and a huge support base made up of deluded and very aggressive people.

    Btw, I'm using good old XP until I cant use it anymore. Distro's like Ubuntu (lol!) and those based on KDE 4 like Slackware (sigh) have gone to bloated trendy looking desktops which I don't like. You get sick of fixing problems with the older desktops like Gnome 2 or KDE 3 so thats not an option either.

    I'm using Vista on my laptop, but most of the computers in our house are running XP. I hear that Windows 7 and 8 are supposed to be the best yet (8 is just an update to 7), but I don't have the money to find out right now.LOL

    The generic name is Ibuprofen. Advil and Motrin are two of the high dollar versions.

    Actually don't mind Vista, came with a laptop but due to some of my old apps not working great I use XP on it. Vista isn't a lot different from Windows 7.
