Using Netrunner on my Netbook now (the Windows 7 inside sticker came off quite easily).  While it was installing from the live thumbdrive I was able to surf the net, post here and watch youtube videos on the netbook.  I don't think Windows can do that.   :popcorn: :rofl: :popcorn:

Installed at work actually on Wednesday and it has been working just fine since.

There is a category of free software I have just realized we don't have.  Mobile apps for Android, IOS and Windows Phone.  If anyone has such to recommend feel free to do so. 

This site  Has a lot of freesoftware reviews.

For the life of me I hated Pascal.  I even lked Assembler (a little) better than Pascal.  I remember someone in my CS2 class made a C++ to Pascal converter program so he could write all of his work in C++.  Strangely the program wasn't that big.

Like Basic Pascal was originally written as a teaching language rather than a general purpose one so it has been used in ways the author did not intend.  Others added things on not necessarily in the same style which could have worked to make it less appealing though it has had a fairly long and somewhat illustrious career.  .  (Never tried Pascal myself).

All I can say is try and I guarantee that you will never use the words Pascal and illustrious in the same sentence again.  lol
