Windows Won

Mon, 2008-06-02 01:19

I was not able to boot a working instance of Linux. This is due only to the fact that I tend to buy computers without built in CD ROMs. It would be nice if the manufactures supported backwards compatibility, but hey I understand, you gotta pay to play. Everything is a tradeoff, and I chose traveling light.

This is a special note to all who wrote in and asked if I backed up my data. Perhaps that is a fair question. There may be great numbers who do not understand that FORMAT DISK means you will lose everything. It may be too much to ask for you to remember that I am not one of those. Just for the record, I am not fond of starting over from scratch. Even better, my business requires I keep track of stuff. Yeah, I BACKED IT ALL UP.

So, Windows XP it is. I am not ashamed of going with the path of least resistance. I have work to do tomorrow. I expect to get it done with a minimum of hassle, despite the reformat.
