    Your puter etc?

    Not very gun related at all - but forum related in a way.

    Pure unmitigated curiosity gets the better of me - again! One reason for asking is something I will divulge later - much later! (Keep you guessin') I'll keep categories simple, but post if I have left out your choice..

    Vote if you will - comment if anything to add - likes, dislikes etc and if you can and on Windoze - your OS type (XP Home, XP-Pro, Win 2k, ME, 98 etc)

    I run MacOSX Tiger at home and WindowsXP at work ... if Adobe would release Linux versions of their software I'd be running Ubuntu Linux at work :D


    Oh and Firefox every-freakin'-where regardless of OS.

    P95Carry, Safari is Apple's port of Konqueror ... it was one of the first to do the tabbed browsing thing.

    Its a nice browser, but I like all the cool extensions I can get for Firefox.


    There are a few things you can do to Safari ... check it -> www.pimpmysafari.com

    Home built PC running Windows XP pro. Lots of bells and whistles that were smokin a year ago.

    Wife's computer networked to mine is running the same. Only differences are CPU (her's is Intel and mine is AMD) and graphics card. Mine is a screaming high end for games and I'm a guy, it just had to be that way. Her graphics card is just mediocre. Don't need much for solitare, Quicken, and e-mail.

    Windows XP Professional. Use mostly Internet Explorer but have been trying Avant Browser (tabbed) for a couple of weeks. I have always built my own computers, starting in 1985.
