Just got our new computer – a Duo Core Intel 2.4GHz, 250 GB HD with a high speed and resolution graphics board – a GeForce 7600 GS —– [ what a fast machine, we are going to need the speed for the video processing] and tried to install Windows XP Prof. – Damn thing screwed up the whole thing – said I needed to call Microsoft because my Activation number was used 3 times and that was not allowed – and yet it was their own auto install that apparently activated it several times — what a piece of CRAP. I did this so I would have a good registered operating system on board – that was a mistake I won’t make again.
I’ll have to take it back to the computer store I got if from tomorrow so they can re-format the HD’s and reinstall the operating system they installed – LINUX — this windows nonsense is just that – can’t wait till the Apple Operating system is sold to the general public – I think I will get it and then have the best of both worlds – run Mac and PC software – only problem is you have to reboot to switch – but what the hell it’s better than putting up with Microsoft’s crap. I’ll set this one up now with UNIX and dual boot to my old Home XP —
Anyway – that’s the reason I haven’t added more pictures to the blog – got a lot from some local trips we have taken lately, but those will have to wait till I get the computers running up to speed. Hang in there with me – retired you know so I don’t try to do more than one thing a day –
