    There were some posts regarding OSes, and also some on processing. I found this good page. Not only is at an FAQ, the important part is that if you scroll down about to questions, there are good links to preview stuff:


    So take a look and let us know what you think!

    Here we have the answer to the mystery behind the codenames of MS systems:

    "As I first revealed, the Longhorn name wasn't chosen randomly. Remember that Windows XP was code-named Whistler and the next version of Windows, at the time, was code-named Blackcomb. Both of these names come from ski areas in British Columbia, close to Microsoft's headquarters. At the foot of Whistler Mountain, there is a saloon named Longhorn that serves the local skiing population. So if you're ever in the area and want to take in some local color, Longhorn is a nice stop… after you're done with Whistler."
