Windows 7 Pro x 2/Windows 10 Home/10 Pro//Windows 10 Insider Preview ?

I discovered this site after purchasing Windows 7 to dual boot with Vista (at the time) and not wanting to make the same idiotic mistakes I did when attempting to upgrade from XP to Vista 3 years earlier I did a google search for "dual boot Windows 7" and after checking out all the other forums this forum was by far the best one. Also the Microsoft Answers forum even had a link to Brink's tutorials which sealed the deal.

After lurking for a few months and realizing the wealth of well written and organized Tutorials plus the amount of threads solved by helpful members convinced me to join not only to help others but also to say Thank You to all those friendly members who have taught me something new each and every day.

Yes, you belong to inventory. I can see John sitting at home, some Courvoisier in glass, reading the check list aloud for our "move":

Windows 7 Professional 6.1.7601

I joined for a couple of reasons. 1.) Being one of the few "I.T. friendly" people at my job, i regularly find myself thrown into projects i have little to no experience with. 2.) I LOVE learning new tricks with windows, and the tutorials that are provided in this forum are amazing for doing just that.

but finally 3.) I love meeting new people that are just as nerdly, if not nerdlier than I. The "games" and conversations we all have are always fun to read through, it's a fun way to pass the day.

I can't remember if it was before I got my PC with Vista, but I came across Shawn in the Newsgroups and followed a link he provided there that took me to the Vista Forums. When him and John set up this one I of course joined the same when they set up the 8 forum.

I'm just an old stalker following them around.

Back when I upgraded from XP to Vista, I would be fiddling around with it learning how to do this and that. Every time I searched Google would popup and I eventually joined the forum to thank Shawn for his countless tutorials that had helped me, then it went from there.

I think I was looking for Yugoslavian Goat Shaving sites when I came across this in the Google search....

Honestly, I can't remember....I was having some sort of issue with 7 & saw this forum. Upon parsing the posts, I noticed there were no rude comments, flamers or other problems. It was (& still is) well organized, a good place to find answers with some very good people to help you out.

I was in search of icons after getting windows 7. My intention was to customize the appearance. Some nice icons I found on google, and those linked to this place. Thus I discovered this place.

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.
