tried to use it but it is incredibly buggy. One annoying "feature" is that it keeps closing the main window and popping up a pane on a black screen, asking about drivers etc. You can't then do anything until it is finished, and failure means it keeps asking you every few minutes, over and over.

another thing, it takes sooooooo long to transfer files, it is like watching paint dry.

OS' peak at XP. (Though win98 is close)

Everything else (for a few years) will be more gig-hungry and less functional.
www.pyxia.com - BASIC was never less basic.
