Within an hour of browsing, I thought I may get some help for my virtual XP installation, so I joined and asked the question.

Please dont ask the rest What happened with my question.

Ok, I'll bite too. What happened next??????

My story is pretty mundane.
I joined Vista Forums a few years ago when I was getting a laptop for the first time, and simultaneously was upgrading from XP to Vista. Although I had used a PC for many years and was very familiar with XP, I needed all the help I could get trying to decide which laptop to buy, and also to learn as much as possible about Vista. So I started with another forum that has a huge section devoted to helping members make the best decisions about which laptop to buy --- and I kept noticing references to Vista Forums. And once I joined Vista Forums, the road to Window Seven Forums was easy.

I typed " Windows Vista tips and tricks" in Google and it got me to Vista Forums
For few days, I only looked at Shawn's great tutorials and later, started helping people out there. When SF started, I didn't join for some time thinking I'd join when I'll run Windows 7. Then I downloaded a leaked Windows 7 ( yeah, in those times we were crazy looking for leaked builds) and joined SF. Today, I can proudly say that I'm one of the oldest member here ( member # 370) and it feels great to be a part of this community.
