    LOL!

    And here I thought it was the GTG method of organizing I'm using because my
    inbox is constantly empty despite getting 300+ emails/day.

    :p

    I'd like to see one. Never have though. Over one year running Vista
    Ultimate x64. Not a problem to report. Even the literally hundreds of
    Vista installs I've done in the same amount of time are running strong.

    Yes, Windows NT 6.0 seems to be a bit better at not crashing than NT 4.0 or
    5.x was.

    Seeing it is the latest version of the Operating System, thats generally
    what happens. (Disregarding Windows ME)

    I wonder what has changed in the kernel between 5.x and 6.x. Is there a
    changelog somewhere?

    PerfectReign took a can of maroon spray paint on December 1, 2007 11:52 am
    and wrote the following:
    I saw it somewhere

    just a lot of the following:

    long int iCount;
    for (i=1, i==0; i++) {
    SpinHourGlass();
    SpawnDoNothingProcess();
    }

    HTH

    Nah, that's the old Microsoft. I actually have access to the Windows source
    code. I noticed several changes. These days everything is in the managed
    code arena under .net 2.0 assemblies.

    Here's how it looks, copied from my source files:

    using memoryhandler;
    using genuineadvantage;
    using propriatery.codecs;
    using os2.core.modules;
    using vms.core.modules;
    using sun.java.core.libraries;
    using apple.macintosh.gui;

    public class kernel386 {
    public static void Main()
    {
    long int iCount extends infinity;
    for (i=1; 1>0; i++)
    {
    SpinHourGlass();
    SpawnDoNothingProcess();
    CheckGenuineAdvantage();
    LoadMacintoshGUI();
    }

    }
    }

    I bow to your geekiness. I'd forgotten completely about the whole Win16
    thunking kludge they'd created.

    I still use XP. I can't remember the last time I even had a BSoD. Just
    need to reboot every few weeks to deal with what appears to be imperfect
    garbage collection.

    Of course, I also keep the warez to a minimum and use F-Prot instead of
    the major name virus programs which are themselves arguably malware. In
    fact I just remembered the last time I had a BSoD: I was trying to click
    a desktop icon while Norton Internet Security was still in its 10-minute
    startup sequence. Apparently wanting to use your computer while NIS is
    hijacking it is a punishable offense.

    Having a decent amount of physical ram helps too; perhaps Vista really
    wants an indecent amount.

  20. I have found XP to be quite acceptable. I run XP on several computers.
    The one I am using now, a Sony laptop, will occasionally BSOD with the
    flaky usb wireless network card. I can not for the life of me figure out
    why it does it only occasionally, but when it happens, it is always at
    startup. It's not a serious issue, I usually reboot and it's fine. The
    one at work that I have been using for almost 6 years has BSOD'd twice
    in that time, both times were after burning a CD and ejecting the disk.
    A software update fixed that and it hasn't done so in about 4 years of
    continuous use. My other work computer is a bit newer and I have yet to
    have a BSOD, but I'm sure it will happen some day. I haven't tried Vista
    yet, and probably never will. My work is buying me a shiny new Mac laptop.
