    Thanks, after it finishes it's current job, I'll reinstall and try to record the error better. I'm going purely off memory.

    I used to run 10.04 on a dual Xeon X5650 computer for Folding@Home.

    I loaded 12.10-64 successfully (it was folding under Win7-64 Pro) but when I went to restart it, it said PANIC core error?...

    Re: IE commercial. Major selling point: Security?

    No, IE came after.

    At the time, browsers were too big to download off the internet. Netscape was #1, but it sold at stores. When MS put IE on the install disk for Win95? IIRC, it became the #1...

    Re: IE commercial. Major selling point: Security?

    Yup.

    Even though IE comes pre-installed on over 90% of desktops sold today, they are losing market share. These are the people they need back; those who gave up on IE because of malware.

    Chrome has some bugs that stop it from being my sole browser. Like it can't open pull down menu picks on some sites.

    They lost money again this quarter. Another year of that, it will force more sell-offs. Even General Motors can go bankrupt if they don't show profits on sales. AMD has sales, but no profits.
