Default Byte Me, Bill G!

Hey, Service Pack 1 is out for Vista!

1.6 Gigabytes! Pack a lunch, is all I gotta say!

For my fellow Neaderthals with XP, SP3 is supposedly in Beta and planned for release in a month or three.

1.6GB! Man, that's a lot of "update".

It doesn't seem that long ago that my MacIntosh had an OS that was a little over 2K. And that was a lot bigger and faster than the 512!

Lord, am I getting old.

And print drivers used to fit on floppies, for those of you who remember what those are.

That's the OS that contains all your medical and legal and personal data. you can own a Mac but Bill Gates owns your life through his proxies in the govt, at the hospital, the banks, grocery store... etc

Always takes a Service Pack or two to straighten out the new MS OS. I hope they come out with some print drivers for the thing. It is a real pain at work.
