Talk about a hi-jacked thread!!! How did this get from computers to Setra rear ends?
Actually the thread didn't get hijacked, It was redirected by a Garmin GPS and took the scenic route. Oh.. Sorry.. I just had to mention GPS....
They should have called them " Go Way Off on a Back Road Adventure Systems "
GWOBRAS ( I know it doesn't make sense! )
I would not like to think about a GPS program running under Vista.. Vista has to stop and ask your permission to CRASH ! ( for lack of a better word . ) Gads..
And NO NASA does not use MS Windows.. It is a custom operating system built for mission critical use. It is a DOS-Like based GUI system. Pretty neat but very expensive. Linux looks about as close as any of us will ever get to "reliable"
Too bad, IBM's OS/2 was almost bulletproof but Ol'e Bill G. took that and stomped the only better operating system into the ground....So here we are...XP & Vista...
