Re: It's "Be kind to the computer illiterate" week.
Thanks all, you've definitely given me food for thought. Not sure I like buying into 7 if its not going to be supported for very long, and yet I remember the terror of buying Vista in its infancy. After that experience I went "back" to XP Pro for the next two machines in the household.
Well, don't worry, no matter where you end up, it will not
be as bad as Vista.*
*Assuming you don't go back to Millenium Edition
Philitas of Cos, Greek intellectual, is said by Athenaeus to have studied arguments and erroneous word usage so intensely that he wasted away and starved to death. British classicist A. Cameron speculates that P. died from a wasting disease which his contemporaries joked was caused by his pedantry.
