    The original data will not successfully extract from .txt files if the file C:\Windows\Notepad.exe does not exist on an infected computer.

              I just tried Linux (SuSE 9.1 Professional with KDE Desktop) . Its good but was lacking the integration that Windows have. I know, what I like so much about Windows is what causes all the problems.

              If only you could play real games on a Mac.

                  Bah!! The only games worth playing come out on PC

                  Seriously, I generally do not go for Arcade style games so a PS2 or X Box would not do me any good. I can't wait til Nov and Everquest 2.

                            KDE sucks ass.... try Gnome. Gentoo is a great distro... it just takes two days to install.

                            Real games? Dual boot into Windoze.. Or play Tux Racer!!!!!

                              Maybe I will try again with Gnome. I have always like SuSE distro, there boxed version comes with some great manuals (I don't mind paying for it).

                              Tux Racer is pretty cool
