Every  time this happens, it worries me as I still must tolerate hordes of
Windows  zombies. What worries me more is that fact that yet another  ver-
sion  of Windows XP (one with visual glitter to extinguish OS X envy) will
be released as early as next year, having solved /none/ of these recurring
issues  whose  source is the non-modular core. That, and only  that,  must
have triggered that project we have come to know as Singularity.

Having  discussed  fan burn-outs, it seems clear that Windows is merely  a
simple  O/S with 'stuff' progressively added up in a naive way, making  it
an utter bloat with features being leeches on the CPU and RAM.

So,  5 years down the line, a stripped-down version of what was  initially
promised,. is be unleashed onto the market. Same issues, more versions for
Microsoft  to maintain (patch up) and yet more deterring hardware require-
ment. Boy, do I look forward to getting my hands on that Vista CD...

If none of the live CD's contains a blue E, this might lead to user

I repeatedly hear voices. "i can't get internet, it says page canot be
dipalyed. can't get my e-mail (Hotmail) either." Very often the computers
are infected or ports get blocked due to the Windows inevitable paranoia.
