    Yesterday, I had my first problem with RC2 build 5744. I was updating a
    Visio drawing when my screen went totally purple. The OS didn't crash,
    because I could tell from audio that I was still clicking around. The only
    thing I could do was press and hold the power button until the notebook shut

    Gotta be the newer Intel graphics driver for GMA900 I installed last week.

    I'd appreciate seeing a screen shot if you took a camera pic of the PSOD.

    Didn't think to snap a pic, but I will if it happens again.

    Purple is the new "in fashion" color this year.
    Just FYI.

    Just when I keep hearing that red is the new black. And I never understood
    why all those rich Hollywood types always show up on TV talk shows
    completely in black.

    Black is supposed to be "slimming" and since they also say that the camera
    adds ten pounds I think the celebs are just hedging their bets :)
