I think we should seriously consider to tell Prodatron to make a special version of SymbOS for a heavily expanded Amstrad Plus and call it Symbos Vista...  :D

If you are so much satisfied with Vista, then you will have you fun with it also on the CPC.

Just kidding  :D


I'm more than happy with Linux Mint 8 right now, I only go back to XP because my scanner is not supported.

Carefull! The Linix drivers for the scanner sometimes activate (accidently?) the digitising function of the scanner. This will throw you into the virtual world:

I wouldn't hold my breath for it... I don't have much trust in them producing something decent and not totally silly...

Sure I love the looks of the new film, but it looks like anything but cyberspace...


I'll go to the cinema but I don't expect much as with many remakes lately.

Tron Legacy is going to be a sequel rather than a remake.
 
The virtual world in the trailer looks the same as the original, but the video card has been upgraded  :)
 
Even if the story is silly it should still look really cool in 3D!
