    or you could just use a registry cleaner? to clean all of the junk.

    Here's a new word.

    Micro$pam

    Speifically all of the random junk MS products (especially windows) pop up.

    For example, I just did the "Genuine Advantage" of windows, and it decided to pop up a page.... "Your software is validated. However, purchase Vista! Only $89"..... paraphrased.

    $89 huh, I always seen it advertised (even just the upgrade from XP to VIsta) for no less than $200.

    Micro$pam
    Very funny. I will have to use that one of these days when telling my customers the downsides of Windows (especially Vista).

    Oh, I dunno.
    It was around that for the student discount (maybe just the upgrade from XP) at the store here.
    I just tossed a price in there.
    As I said, paraphrased, since I closed the window.
    But it really did pop up, acknowledging that it's genuine, with a large picture of a vista box, saying I should buy it

    make sure to clear up the biggest misconceptions about linux...
    - ITS NOT COMMAND LINE and/or DOS.
    It can be, if you want it too. Same as windows.
    - You don't have to be uber-smart.

    But you still need to have a intermediate knowledge of computers.

    The skill-level requirements are pretty much the same as those for Windows. The difficulty comes with people who're used to Windows, and make the assumption that this, that and the other will work the same way as they do on Windows.
