Bare Foot Kids new installation makes toast also!!
That's a really good feature if you get hungry

I made crunchy fish fingers with one of my earlier installations. (years ago, when I was learning)

Well, I understand that it's a lot to ask for but, in my opinion, after the Vista dibocle I think they'd want something that sets them so far ahead of the competition that people would think again after what happened to them when they installed Vista.

In my opinion and I'm sure I represent many people also, Windows 7 is far ahead already, even in beta build.

Was that not the problem with Vista? they shot for the moon and ended up shooting themselves in the foot.
