I Love Computers

After whining about it long enough, my sweet little wife did not object to my upgrading the computer. I was able to get Windows 7, a terabyte drive and Microsoft Office 2010. The computer now runs sweet and is a joy to use. The video card works perfectly and I didn't do anything special. I guess 10 years after Windows XP was released, it was time to upgrade. (Wifey comments that it seems the same to her, but she doesn't recognize all the little things, that are measured in terabytes, and gigabits. This marks the first time I have paid for my software on my computer. Previously I used free software from when I was in college.

And yes it was free, with the MSDN Academic alliance (look into it at your school, I received OSes and Visual Studio for free.
