A definate must read, the simplest ones are always the best, i will find this one very handy

One More of the Same, Please. I’ve seen a few folk caught out by this one. If you’ve already got an application open on your desktop (for example, a command prompt window), and you want to open a second instance of the same application, you don’t have to go back to the start menu. You can simply hold down the Shift key while clicking on the taskbar icon, and it will open a new instance of the application rather than switching to the existing application. For a keyboard-free shortcut, you can middle-click with the third mouse button to do the same thing. (This trick assumes that your application supports multiple running instances, naturally.)

Definitely a very good link. I will have to read this a few times (slow circuits and a defective RAM - LOL).

in one hour i've crashed it, blue screened it, eset smart security wont work, i've installed music and now i'm working on dvd's to iso and watching with vlc. the wireless says it connected, but its not connecting. the start menu is awesome. i've added everything to it from control panel.
i installed it on my first build that was just to run linux, it runs excellent on that computer. installing it, i liked how it set itself up. i like everything about it so far, EXCEPT one thing. this is picky, it's like a comment someone would leave on lifehacker as to why vista sucks forever. i can't find a way to make the taskbar decrease in width. it takes up too much space. but it's beta and there's really nothing to complain about. this is the mac and xp killer
also, it's only used 10 gigs of space so far...
an i book marked the link, thanks scott
