My car is almost as old as XP, my wife' is older - both work fine.
I'd certainly hope that your wife is older than XP!
Firefox is for anyone who does not want to deal with that ingrained in the system bloated piece of crap security nightmare that is IE.
By "IE" are you referring to IE 6 or to IE 8 and 9?
I am currently setting up your laptop for xxxxxxxxx department. I noticed you have Ubuntu and Windows running on Virtual Box. We cannot have linux computers on the network , and cannot have any copies of Windows running that aren't joined to the xxxxxxxxx Network. Also, there is Bittorrent software on the computer which isn't allowed.
I can remote the bittorrent and the Virtual machiens and then the computer will be able to be added. Would you like me to do this? Any files or programs that you have installed on them will be lost.
I am surprised at the policy against linux, especially given the amount of research that gets done in the University of California using linux and other open source projects. Is this a trend? Do they have a basis for security concerns regarding linux?
The other sad thing is the banning of bittorrent, which is simply a file-downloading program."
