bit trial. For just 6 bucks shipping and handling I get half a year to try what must be a better operating system than Vista! All the sudden I got no bloat! My pf usage is WAY down! The huge RAM I purchased to run much of the worthless bloated XP/Vista compatible software I've practically been forced to buy is gone; and the neat programs coded for XP 64, which obviously work better, leave my RAM memory idling! My AMD Turion is finally been let out of the cage and is performing furiously! NAaagh! I think I'll stick with XP 64!

You might have told us up front it is only available in the US and Canada. We know in Australia that the US is the center of the world but we don't all live there.

Mac X or Ubuntu is much better. Even XP is better.

I'm not interested because you always have to have a MS browser. I don't use a MS browser and don't care to for this.............
