There's a lot of new stuff and it takes time to learn where everything is. but it does seem more stable that xp. but, I'm new to it and its only been running for 2 weeks. actually thinking of putting a widescreen monitor on it. I have my external hard drive encloser and may either transfer data from "ZERO" computer to "THOR" computer. can't make my mind up on wheather I should get a Tetrabyte hard drive. A nice Saturday so far.
