Hi there Pete--
If you want the BSODs to stop why haven't your taken instructions of how to
read the BSOD error, which will give a little bit of indication of the
probably multiple causes for it, and *could tell us it's software (the
highest probability here of transient BSODs), also if you've recently added
any hdw devices, and we'll show you how to get 'er fixed goshdarnit, you
betcha, "gimme the launch codes." Ah kin see Redmond from here.
BTW--how did you determine Vista is an "inferior OS?" It represents a lot
of good work. It does a remarkable number of things on a remarkable variety
of hdw world wide. It gets a bad rap mostly from individuals who have never
used it who heard it was a headache because some 3rd party driver makers
dragged their feet. Granted there are many fine tools in Linux. OS X works
extremely well. Why not use all 3?
I have heard a rumor that MSFT is making a newer better faster more CPU
efficient OS called Windows 7. You will be able to download and try the
CPP of its RC1 pretty soon. Give it a shot.
At this point have you fixed your OS? If not post the info on the BSOD and
we'll get it fixed.
