I do run XP, but is a combined/modded version of Pro and Media Center.

That sounds awesome! What interface are they and where do you get them from?

Local shops usually have them is you order them. I already have a WD drawer, but the thing can't get mounted due to the screws. They don't fit at all, even CD types screws.

I don't see a Unix or Mac option up there. Mac OS and Windows XP.

i didnt realise so many people used linux.
ubuntu is good, but if i were to ever go back to it, then it would only be to use aircrack

Ubuntu 7.10, upgraded just prior to the release(About a week and a half I was using the beta, release candidate, version). Seems stable so far, haven't had Windows on my computer or laptop for at least 4 years now... Long time, now that I think about it. lol

I would use Windows, for games and such, but Ubuntu, and Linux in general, is fine for me. Plus I can't afford to buy Windows atm.

As a side note... Been a while since I've been here. Thought I'd say hello to everyone and wish CF a happy 5th birth day.

I use Gentoo on my main PC. Nothing beats a custom system with a stripped out kernel for speed and smooth operations. Linux has much better memory allocation and no need to defrag... ever. It's my personal choice. I've not used MS for over 5 years now and I've not regretted it. Due to the knowledge I've gained using my OS, I can run anything you give me. Any game I've wanted I could make run on linux just fine.
My laptop runs LinuxMint because there was no perk for using a custom OS for what I was doing with it.
(btw, for those that mentioned using memory... I have firefox, WoW, gaim, 2 terminals and a file browser open and I'm using 500 MB og RAM... beat that)
