We are nearing the end of our new system upgrade rollout. Prior to 7 however, we were still using Windows 2000, have only had 7 for a couple months here, I think we were one of the first Australian businesses to have 7 rolled out by Dell.

If it doesn't...it is time to bring back the "Salem Witch Trials"...using XP by that time would only be explained by witchcraft

lol, yeah

Either that or it would be explained as a neo-religion with XP being their object of worship.

It's not that far fetched, Scientology is classed as a 'religion'...

Lol, that's why I chose a 'safe' religion to poke fun at

I can agree with that...have you ever saw a commercial for Scientology (Not poking fun at who believe it here now...) but I was perplexed by exactly what they were trying to get across

Thankfully no, we don't have any of their commercials.

However we did just have them in the news for being very naughty


To be honest, I find the entire thing perplexing.

Sadly, yes I am. It's an old pile of crap with 512 MB RAM and my boss in her infinite wisdom decided to put Norton 2009 on there. Not that it's as big a resource hog as its predecessors, but with only 512 MB RAM? Ouch.
