"You have moved your mouse. To make change permanent please
It's almost that bad... ;-) PS/2 mice would annoy me, if the computer
started without noticing the mouse, you had to reboot to attach it.
Didn't have to with the same hardware on Linux, though.
I have a laptop that came with Vista, so I kept it, but usually ignore
it, running Linux from another partition. Occasionally I'll boot it,
it'll start, whinge that anti-virus is out of date, download an update,
and whinge that I must reboot. I haven't even started to use the
computer for my own purposes, yet, and I'm already having to reboot!
I'm not sure whether if I keep on going, and not reboot, whether the
anti-virus is running, but with old definitions, or isn't running.
Well, I can see it's "running," I just don't know if it's
I'm not going to test it.
Everything's a bloody reboot...
(This computer runs FC7, my others run FC4, FC5 & FC6, in case that's
important to the thread.)
