    Good idea. Perry Mason there might sue you.

    Lol

    In person, I can sniff out a forthcoming dead lawyer (you've heard them, they've got morals like 'the only good lawyer is one who's been backed over with a tractor trailer a few times') or Mexican joke well before the perpetrator manages to say anything I won't be able to forgive him for. It's not my fault I don't look like one nor the other.

    It just lights up my day to see the look of relief mixed with apprehension on a person's face when they say "So three lawyers/Mexicans walk into a bar..." And I say, "Really? I'm a lawyer/Mexican." And they realize that I saved them the trouble of looking like an absolute ****er.

    As for suing people, that sounds like less fun than averting lawyer jokes

    The question should be asked, "What does ANY new version of Windows really solve?" Can't we just keep xp with better performance or security, or even vista for that matter, or even 7?

    Simply, no, even assuming SP3. XP does not have an antivirus installed by default like Windows 8 does. It also does not have UAC.

    OML!!! Windows XP was the MOST unsecure Operating System that has came out of Microsoft since Windows 95a!

    Maybe Ford should have kept the Tin Lizzy. Then we would not need that many roads. LOL

    Coke, you're raising a valid point. By the time XP arrived (and some people believe it was earlier than that) Windows did everything that most people wanted. If you kept your XP AV updated, 7 provided little more than better visuals. New versions aren't really solving problems, but they are making improvements. Speed, memory, and storage have improved to the point of better programs. And as criinal activity has improved, security has to improve as well.
