    Installing Linux on a Netbook from a USB Thumbdrive

    I don't mind Gnome, Its a solid and very fast interface, not to mention clean, and I've found it has fewer bugs than KDE. Beauty is with linux you can actually switch between both interfaces, so it gives you a choice unlike Windows.

    Installing Linux on a Netbook from a USB Thumbdrive

    there is a free utility from microsoft that allows you to install from a USB "stick". I only install from usb sticks even though I have a DVD-RW. it's much quicker, and allows you to slipstream in updates. I dual boot Kubuntu and Windows 7 Ultimate on my computer and Ubuntu and Windows 7 Pro on my laptop. I actually prefer KDE over Gnome, but that's my preference.

    Very true, but the RC was extremely stable. anyways, I've been using the Retail release since launch, with no problems to speak of.

    You do realize that microsoft ran a public RC right? And afaik, the RC is good till sometime this year.
  8. The administrator account is disabled by default, here is how you can enable it at logon: Ok there are really two ways of doing this depending on which version of vista you have. And in 1 or 6 easy steps! Method 1: All versions of Vista 1. Open the registry editor (Run as Administrator) 2.Navigate to the following registry entry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows NT/CurrentVersion/Winlogon/SpecialAccounts/UserList 3. Look for an entry on the right side for Administrator. If it doesn’t exist, you will need to create it. To do so, right-click on UserList and select New > DWORD Value. Give the value a name of Administrator. Press the Enter key when you are done. 4. Right-click the Administratorentry and click Modify. 5. Set the Value data to 1 and click OK. 6. Close the registry editor and restart the computer. The Administrator account should now be an option on the login screen. Method 2: Vista Ultimate and maybe business Go to C:\windows\system32 Once in that folder, right-click on lusrmgr.msc (easier if you search for *.msc) and select run as administrator. Now select the users folder, you'll see all the user account once in that folder, right-click on administrator and select properties, uncheck 'Account Is Disabled', restart and your administrator account should be enabled at login. You can also set a new password here in case you forgot or you have a pre installed version (aka OEM/System Manufacturer) and do not get to choose a password. lusrmgr is disabled in Vista HomeBasic/Home Premium. Not too sure about Business.

    Grand Theft Auto IV

    I almost broke down and bought a PS3 but instead I saved the money and bought a Nintendo DS. But man I wanted the PS3, not just for the game but for the 5 Free BluRay DVD's.
