    no no not all lol but this kid was a little to eager to trade me for this brand new in box dell dual core machine that he had to check if it was 64bit.... some say the word is stolen?

    ya got my ubuntu 10.4 64 bit disk in hand, seems like such a waste to totally take winders off this cuz this thing runs smoooooooth..... wow new machines are nice.

    the dude never used this thing its brandy new. he worked at staples and won it at some work convention thing. 15inch wide screen monitor.... maybe i'll save it and dual boot just to be nice to winders
