Just watch the money rolling in from Bill Gate's perspective.
He could finance the USA all by himself.

Actually, he couldn't even cover 25% of what's been spent in Iraq so far,
much less fund the US goverment. Compared to what Bush & Co. have to spend,
Gates is a pauper.

HA! I just installed Presto! Page Manager and the VistaAccess scanner software
onto a Win 98SE machine 2 days ago. The computer should be tossed already, but
there is no arguing with someone who doesn't care what you say.

As Silj Mentions PCMAG.COM "Longhorn" will be called "Windows Vista" wonder
why they borrowed the IBM Vista series name?? Might be a clash but then IBM
may be no match for Gates...

Nope. I'm sitting in from of my box with large IBM on the top and on the
botton right hand side "NetVista". If my memory serves me right, when I
bought it, there were several choices in the Vista serie to choose from.

Having grown up in Texas, that was my first thought too when I first hear of
it. But, the more I thought of it, the more I thought of Longhorn cheese.
It's one of my fav's. <g>

Not having read much of this thread but Longhorn is the name of a bar in
the valley between Whistler (the codename for what became XP) and
Blackcomb (the codename of the operating system to follow Longhorn).
