On at network of 32 computers at the office, on a network of 6 computers at home. I get the same results.
Divx starts and plays a full movie on first use. Then from there on out, hang up. Two dell computers with vista 30 computers winxp. One custom build windows seven, 5 computers vista.
Solution to prevent the hang up, right click media select item to open with. I choose win media player. I selected the “always option”.
I also installed xvid codecs to ensure no other issues.
Problem solved. Now none of the employees come to me to solve the stupid issue. Other than the few that figure since I am I.t., it is my duty to re-write the code so they can use the media player of their choice.

I find it weird when people say that xp is good, do they not know how many patches M$ has released for that junk? nd how many Patches to patch the patch that patched the patch that was bad?
Windows 7 is hype made by the sponsored for the easily targeted newbs who just want the newest and not the best... newest is always best... right??? right???? right?

Well after plenty of hassle, all printers and scanners are functioning. All networking is functioning. About the same amount of issues if we had gone with opensource. Ubuntu,open office and Peachtree Linux
Boot is fast, print is fine, no virus scanners we installed worked yet.

From Life Hacker:
First off, i have to say, the screen shots are remarkable.
Reader Dylan Boom shows how to mix operating systems environments with style in his Mac Meets Windows Dual-Desktop. Dylan is running OS X with XP in a virtual machine, and each system is completely customized to form a beautiful transition between Mac and Windows. Frankly, neither system puts the other to shame. Here’s a rundown of all the hardware, apps, and tweaks Dylan made to both operating systems to pull off this pleasant coexistence:

Sorry for the lack of creativity, i am currently at work right now and don’t have a bunch of time. But I do like the article. I don’t like mac, but i love seeing mac people want to use another operating system. Kinda proves how useless a mac is.
If you have no idea what I Mean. Read This.
As a tech guy who works for a company with the word “Tech” In it’s name. As a tech guy who owns two websites with the word ” Tech” in their name. I have to point out an issue I noted when watching the commercial.
There is an issue they do not point out. I can directly point out which of the people they showed in the interview where not techy people. And I can point out the ones they picked because they looked like the stereo typical “computer geek looking” people. Fat guy, Oriental, middle eastern,skinny white guy with glasses.
First off, No tech knowledgeable person could for one minute sit in front of a computer with an unexplored operating system, without diving head first into exploration. No knowledgeable techy person would ever accept an operating system as “fast” form watching someone else use it, or watching a video of someone else use the operating system.
Typically there is a blank look in someone’s face when they are bsing you into believing they know more about computer than they really do. They also keep their hands near their face or wrench them with an anxiety of “please let me leave, I just signed up for a random survey and figured I could bs my way through it, I had no idea it was about computers. Please just pay me and get this over with so I can leave.” .
Some of the people in the video, they just show a briefing of them, but no show of reaction, either those people are just people who looked like nerds so they used them, or, those nerdy people really where nerdy and ended up ragging the operating system, so they didn’t show much of them.
It is clear the crowd was selected.
I myself have the operating system on the computer I am using. I really do like and enjoy allot of the features, But I also turned off a mess-load of useless resource hogging items off Meet Black Viper.
I have followed black Viper’s instructions, for many of operating systems.
I hope you see what I noticed and raise a stink saying ” Hey I am observant, not an idiot” .
