Default Hey look it's Win 7 - 09-24-2009, 12:50 PM

A big thank you to all who contribute to this board. Just upgraded my Mini 9 from 4 GB to Runcore 32GB. Still pondering the OS X just for fun but the quick and dirty install of a lite version of 7 was just too easy. This moves me from a lite XP to a more modern 7. Less than 4GB used and still a few more things to install. Firefox with the caching set up is quick. It is nice enough that I signed up for the upgrade from Vista on my desktop. BTW Vista has been working fine for me on the desktop. Oh all this is with just 1G of ram. Video smothed out quite a bit too. Thanks again all...
