Not a bad looking system, too bad you've got the RedmondVista virus on it. Twisted Evil

Yeah,

Looks like a real monster ...

The real question is ... will it let you write Identity Crisis any faster? Just kidding!

And to Nicolai ... RedmondVista is a trojan, not a virus! It makes a backdoor for the real virus, RedmondVistaUpdateLive

As soon as my laptop is out of warranty, hello Linux, goodbye Vista!

Beg pardon? Ain't no vista on this box. That's my old XP on there.

I'm going to toss on Slackware Linux and OS-X as well.

Of course, there's no limit to the possibilities with the virtual machines I'll have built... Smile

That's the trick. I have yet to install Office on it. I'll probably toss 2003 on it, though I've got 2007 licenses as well. The simple fact is that I HATE 2007's interface. They had to go and screw up what worked. Now I spend more time trying to figure out how to do crap as actually using the software.

Brilliant job.

Well, you could always try Open Office instead.
It is much cheaper than Micro$oft. {it's FREE}
And a new version just came out with lots of added features.

Thanks, but I'll pass for now. Besides, I have VLK versions of Office from work. Since I do work from home on this PC, it's perfectly legitimate for me to install it on this machine.

There are some perks working where I do.... unfortunately, one of them isn't a high pay scale, which is why I have to work a full time job, plus a second consulting to cover bills. Razz
