Thanks for the info. I, myself, can not think of any good reason to run windoze 8 or newer. I will admit that I dual boot, using 7 for a few apps that I can not run in PCLOS, but I do use PCLOS 99% of the time or when ever I am not forced to use 7.
Crow, yes Intel has been getting alot more sticky over time and I had always preferred Intel, but my last build, I used an AMD and feel they are gaining customers by giving them what they want. I feel that the DIY industry stands too much to loose by shutting us out.
Just17, Your words are music to my ears/eyes.
I had started out in computers, with the primary interest in hardware. Now, I spend way more time at the keyboards.
