Of course what she means is why can't I go buy a pre-configured systems rather
than wing it and be in front of the curve. I suspect there are plenty of
people upgrading to Windows 7 themselves and *something* didn't go right with
a driver.

That being said, I don't understand all the regression issues with Intel
chipsets. The madness started with 8.10 (at least for me). I was hoping 9.10
would be the light at the end of the tunnel. (I am dutifully waiting for others
to shake it down.)
