Whew ...

Well, it took since Monday to get my new laptop set up (the biggest headache was migrating my email from Thunderbird on the old to the new). Yes, I got another Gateway because the old one served me well. I spent under a grand for a 17" widescreen and it came with MS Office. The widescreen is something I'm still not used to yet but I'll get over it. Movies and hi-res pics look great on it.

About the operating system, it came with Windows Vista. It's XP on steroids. It has some cool shit but it's cumbersome and it's got a lot of extra crap I don't feel is needed, especially for experienced users. It's mostly special effects and I don't see the big deal.

My old laptop below. As you can see, it's been a lot of places.

To all Mac users: Please don't tell me about Macs. I've never used a Mac. Never saw anyone use one. I've had PCs for 15 years and I'm too old to learn something new, and too cheap to experiment.
