We should thank MS for Windows 7. It is the best MS OS since XP.
 
As for Windows Vista and 8 I tried dragging them into the recycle bin and even the bin rejected them.

Everything old is new again.
There are no new ideas in the world, only new ways of making them.

A song and a quote.

I've just opened up my Microsoft Surface RT and the sound chip has the tiny letters SID written on it. I wonder what that means?

Close, but I think it's a screen showing all 16 colors in blocks.  I was thinking that I actually liked the old Q-Link screen.  Not that I saw it for long as I spent most of my time in People Connection, occasionally hitting the files and messages.
