    Did anyone else have the magnavox television with the button that switched it over to pong? We had one back in the early '80s when I was a kid. You plugged these paddle controllers into the back of the tv, clicked a pushbutton, and BAM you were playing pong.

    Use whatever OS or desktop works for you. Backup your computer regularly, and definitely before updating, upgrading, or partitioning.
