    Getting kind of crowded!


    I wonder how many boot entries one could have, anyone have any idea?


    Sorry for the IR flash, I still haven't taken time to learn how to disable it.

    Lol, that pic reminds me of HAL. As for the number of entries, I guess you could have a ton. Would be pretty irritating I guess having to scroll through each one.

    Aww, it's not hurting anything being there, besides, sometime I need a good laugh so I boot into XP for a while.

    I just booted there myself, first time in a month. Side by side, atleast compared with the beta, XP booted faster to logon screen, and about equal as far as loading the desktop, given 7 gadgets and so on. Not done by stopwatch, but by mental burn in made by using 7 exclusively for about the past month. Yet to get the RC going... key not working

    Ted, I've had 9 OS's at one time, it's only really limited by the space you have.

    Actually, at one time back in 03 when I was still working in the anti-malware field, I had 2 W95's, 2 W98's, 2 W2K, 3 XP, and another 6 or thereabouts in VM...heheh. I had one of each OS used as strictly isolated clean installs that I would install an unknown malware (or suspected malware) and they were all monitored for every change made. Those would be reinstalled immediately after it was no longer needed to monitor that variant. The others would have certain config changes made and then the malware would be installed and tested on that for other certain behaviors like port sniffing them to see what/where they wanted to contact.

    Then the VM's for any real nasty that needed to be completely sandboxed and abused, and the rest for my use.
    I tell ya, I got tired of installing OS's after years of that...

    @ Digger - I'm actually finding the opposite, I find 7 to be really fast to a working desktop even with gadgets (4), AppLauncher, Weather (default one), Calendar and one dual CPU/RAM monitor. Vista was a horrible Dawg with any gadgets running on startup...up to 2 minutes after the Welcome screen started, almost enough time to make coffee
    I think they got it fixed with 7 now. At least for me anyway
