    The 21st century. The age of Smart phones and Stupid people.

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

    And? thoughts of 8?

    Liberalism Is The Philosophy Of The Stupid

    To Achieve Ordered Liberty You Must Have Moral Order As Well

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

    Hmm... I forgot all about the fact that you can manually change the bsod color (and the text color) from blue to anything you want in the system.ini file. Havent thought about that since Windows ME.

    Seems they re arranged the looks of things and although they are also releasing Internet explorer 10 windows itself will in essence be a web browser.

    I multibooted WinXP, Win7 and Win8. It is quite diff. The gui is very nice. But if your not a bit pc savvy the controls might definately throw you off. No start button in the bottom tool bar for the start menu, shut down and program files. I wonder how much will change from what I'm seeing now.

    So far WinXP and Win7 are the best.
