wow... how the heck were you able to type this?? seeing as your rating is still below 500, you cant possible have copy and pasted this... but to me, it seems that you did. after all, even though its quite a mouthful, some of the information you've given weren't related to the topic at all. the topic is about operating systems, and you gave information about types of windows as in the ones that are attached to a building. it's quite obvious that you did not read what you post.
