I have 6 around here, but for some reason none has Win7-32 bit on it. Most have xp, a couple have win7-64.
Were I developing for Mach still I probably would have one of each, but since I mostly program for GM or for myself which doesnt require much hardware compatability, it hasnt been an issue for me. I suppose if Darwin is ever put hard to use Ill have to break down and set up yet another machine. Where the heck does one find all the needed space is the issue. :-)

ART,
I have limited space........SO when the floor space is used up you add counter space or pull out shelves etc, when they fill up you start adding
drop downs from the ceiling. Now when every thing is filled up, you venture onto your better half's space and test your brides ability to share.

Rich aren't you in the man cave in the basement? As long as the washer and dryer is not down there she doesn't care how it looks.  :D But I'm sure she still shakes her head.

laptops work for saving space, not like they all have to be running at the same time or on a network. Learned years ago that one computer cant do it all so have dedicated laptops/computers now.

Yes, that is true.

Washer and dryer are down here and the last thing you want is metal chips to end up inside your drawers.......
Also she does Tai Bo or whatever it's called and she needs room to practice.
Little thing she is but can surely kick the ********* out something!  ;D  ;)  :D

Just for the fun of it I made another video – this time with a second video monitor in the shot. http://www.graytel.talktalk.net/Mach4B.wmv

Hi Art,

It's a 40 Watt glass tube (dc excited) on that machine.
