Yes, that is a good point.

Isn't it funny how these things work. We have our house network setup with four computers both wireless and wired. All computers are dual or triple boot and Xandros is the backbone to the system. You just never know.

The only real trouble that I can think I've had (that wasn't my fault ) I had a ATI all in wonder Radeon that I could not get the TV to work the same time with 3D acceleration. It was one or the other but not both.

Amen to that. It's nice to be able to use your computer instead of fighting it all the time.

I downloaded the sim last night. Now I need some time. I have been trying to get a new kit released and that takes much of the day. You look at the clock and before you know it 24 hours is gone.
