Well John, for one, I am pretty impressed with your skill level only getting under the hood of Windows just 5 years ago.  I have been using MS since DOS days writing batch files then on to Windows 3.1.  I to (if you can't tell by the signature and avatar) have moved on to Linux but have tried to keep up with Windows because I still enjoy figuring out and fixing what is wrong.  You have inspired me to get deeper into learning kernel debugging after this issue.  It will certainly make me a better tech for my customers.  But with that being said, MY primary OS will continue to be Linux.  wink.gif  You should give it a test drive sometime.  wink.gif  I truely beleive you have the technical aptitude to really enjoy it.

Thanks again for all of the help and guidance you have provided me with this issue.

All the best to you,

Ian

HAHA! Great vids!

And yes...

"...one should use whatever hardware, OS and software that is the most convenient and suits your needs."

Absolutely! This is most definitely my philosophy on this. Everyone around here has seen me write, "What's best for you is what's best."

Scot's needs a some added weight to the MS Win side of the board. Your presence here is most welcome!

Have fun!
