How about the next time Windows crashes to the ground?  With all hands
lost?  And that isn't an if.  It has happened to everyone I know excpet
for me.  But, then again, I used to rebuild the machine once a year to
clear all of the old cruft.  

When my kids' machines went south within the same week, I switched over
to Ubuntu.  Their only complaint is their Ipods don't work.  Too new,
but we are working on it.
