    Right -- which is why I suspect the Mac Mini has some hardware oddity that's making it break. When I can upgrade VMWare to 6.5.x I'll try again.
    Code:
    //try
    //{
    	if (a) do { f( b); } while(1);
    	else   do { f(!b); } while(1);
    //}

    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    Well I have been trying beta for past four days or so and i must say they have very much improved it from vista. The boot time is even lesser than Xp and all the graphics works smoothly even with minimum configuration 1 GB ram.
    Aero peek feature is great and so is the new make all windows transparent button next to time at the taskbar.
    I believe this new version is really worth migrating from xp once the stable version is released.

    Vista has Chess Titan, too, and my own engine can easily beat it on highest difficulty.

    Anyone care to recommend some good free antivirus software? I just got my 32 bit version working, and I would hate to see it all gummed up with net nasties.

    The install was great - setup was pretty slick. So far I am pretty impressed.

    There are but three I know actually works... And the Action Center recommends the 3.
    Still, I do without AV. I want my favorite Firewall & AV if anything, or nothing at all.

    Peer pressure had taken over me. I installed it on my machine but the transition was unbearable. I'm attached to my good old xp (classic style and menus).

    Menus still exist. Hit alt to bring them up, then goto options and select always show menus.
    You will learn to find eventually. Just a tip: don't use classic control panel mode.

    Aside from the fact that zip extraction is still unbearably slow, I've been pretty happy with Seven so far. Should be a nice improvment from Vista. Still won't take me away from OS X though.

    Don't trust zip support or burning capabilities. They have always been poor.
    Better use 3rd party, REAL, solutions.
