Yes, Virtual PC (a Windows emulator for Macintosh) is now being ported to Windows.  So... a Windows emulator for Windows is what we have here.  And what they'll make you pay probably $50+ for.

...?

VC++: Yes, you can avoid the problem with an extra set of braces, but that is not the main point...the main point is that it breaks compatability with lots of code out there.

Most of the VC++ compiler problems is listed at http://www.boost.org/more/microsoft_vcpp.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.boost.org/more/microsoft_vcpp.html

WindowBlinds: Tried it, it wastes resources and makes the machine crawl. Personally I don't bother about skins, the computer is a *tool* and I don't care much about skins as long as they let me do whatever I want to do (which does not include staring pointlessly on the window borders). But by all means go for it...

Yea, all I ever use my computer for is watching movies (I know, I know) and building apps that do seem to work.  :)

Windows Xp looks nicer than all the others an everything is in a good place, It never crashes although the helpfile is totaly buggered.

does that mean it would be like running ME, so I would that solve a problem I'm having with starlancer on XP? (Odd tiling effect)

I dunno. But if it is the problem with the UI, WindowBlinds can fix it.

I think its just the driver, but there isnt a new one yet. Windows drivers always seem to be buggy for me

I found this to be hilarious:

In 1994 Erwin Unruh presented to the C++ Standards Committee a template program that generated prime numbers. The program didn’t compile, but in its error messages it displayed the prime numbers. This created a new way of thinking about templates.
