I've ordered new parts for my PC and after spending years in the doldrums

The problem is I'm so out of touch, I have no idea what the latest and best

My brief list...Clean your PC with top 5 tools
No matter how meticulous you are in limiting the number of fre
downloads you install on your PC or laptop, your computer will stil
get jam-packed with junk that restricts performance, clogs up your har
disk, and makes system crashes more likely.
Some of the useless programs came with your PC, but much of it ha
accumulated over time, as a result of installing and uninstallin
programs, creating and saving files, and even simply surfing the web.
But things don't have to be that way: Downloadable software can clea
up your PC and give it a new lease on life. We've put together 20 file

[Requires subscription to access]
Fortune magazine reports that 'three top PC makers' want to license OS
X. The companies were not named.
Background: Mac OS X is built at the core from components that were
designed to run on Intel as well as PowerPC hardware. These OS
components include the Mach 3.0 kernel and FreeBSD, commonly known these
days as the open source Darwin OS. In other words, there is nothing
significant keeping Mac OS X from running on x86 hardwar...[News] PC makers move closer to a post-Windows world
In January, Hewlett-Packard will introduce a glossy black mini-laptop
at retail for a mere $379. When it does, it will become the first
major computer maker this decade (besides Apple, of course) to push a
non-Windows PC in stores. This Linux-based version of the HP Mini
1000 will not slay Microsoft (MSFT) Windows. But it will add to a
growing sense that the iconic operating system=92s best days are behind
Today, evidence is mounting that Microsoft=92s dominance in computing
isn=92t what it used to be. It=92s not just the Windows Vista flop and
those damning commercials,...Rumour: Handheld WINDOWS PC Maker OQO Not Long for This World
Odd isn't it, every time I went to buy a Linux netbook, they were sold out
before my payment cleared the bank, even tho they had stock when I ordered.
I'm not saying that OQO failed *because* they only offered Windows XP Pro
and not Linux on their units, I'm sure it's just a coincidence ....
I'm sure their *high return rates* weren't cause by Windows either, that's
probably just another coincidence ...
Despite their high prices and high return rates, we've always had a soft
spot for OQO. But the recent resignation of a CEO, retailer problems, a...It's the apocalypse: the Mac is in the top 5 world wide!
At least for the trolls and fan boys, it's an apocalypse:
Apple moved into the number 5 position on a worldwide basis, slightly
overtaking ASUS. The company's steady growth, along with recent price
cuts and improved demand in mature markets, has helped it to
consistently outgrow the market.'
That's 6.3% market share, T&FB.
And it only gets worse for our bigoted North American T&FBs:

Appil top client PC maker
No longer is HP the top dog in PCs.
HP strategy is windopws PC and it has lost the
race as appil displaces it for top dog as client
If it were not for open source, there would no appil.
That is a clear warning to HP and other hardware
makers - switch to open source to save your bacon now
or kiss goodbye to ALL hardware sales. If you don't like BSD
open source because of the huge infrastructure needed
to get it going like appil has, then use Linux to jump

...Which soundblaster (if any) for surround in Logic 5.5 on PC?
Here's the scoop: I'm using Logic 5.5 on a PC. Currently, I have an
old SoundBlaster Live! with 4.0 surround.
The problem is that Logic doesn't seem to be able to send stuff to the
rear speakers, no matter which outputs I choose in
"Options->Preferences->Surround...". I now suspect that the
soundblaster only has two *real* DAC outputs, and that the drivers for
the card (when adjusting the balance of the surround speakers) merely
control some analog mixer at the output stage of the card.
Put in simpler terms, I fear that it's impossible to send comple...Need FrameMaker 5.5.6 (or newer) for PC
Here's my situation.
I use Linux (right now Fedora Core 6) for my day-to-day computing. I have an
ancient Sun Ultra 1 which I maintain solely for access to FrameMaker 5.5.6.
I also have a Windows PC that I use for running some commercial programs
like QuickBooks. I access the Sun and the Windows machine through my
principal Linux machine.
I would like to retire the Sun but this would leave me without access to FM.
Since there is still no Linux version, I would like to put FM on the
Windows machine. I have no need for any of the features past 5.5.6 and am
unwilling to pay for n...How File Maker Pro 5.5 save tables?

In FileMaker 5.5, the format file *is* the table. See "View as Table" to
