...because of the virtual machine. I know I know, this isn't big news for all the geeks here, but it has a serious practical application for me. I've had this computer for two days, and I'm finally getting it sorted out. Anyways, I can run my Link software, Zeitronix, Mitchell, among other things I have not gotten to yet, without issue. Once installed in the XP environment, everything is gravy baby, like KFC. Also, ThinkPad's kick ass.
