That would be me. I call it the Surrender Flag because when I use it in Linux it means that Billy G has said to me "I surrender...here is your real OS. :D I miss it on the distro that do not utilize the Surrender Flag to access the menu.

Life's Journey is not to arrive safely at the grave in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways totally worn-out shouting 'Woo Hoo! What a ride!

Motorsports - the only real sport. If it doesn't have a motor, it is just a game.

There is always something waiting at the end of the road, if you are not willing to see what it is, you probably shouldn't be out there in the first place.

Yup, if you have a mechanical keyboard you can go to dad keyboards and get replacement keys for the windoze key, have to look around and see if you can get a replacement form the tough book keyboard

Why use a 32 bit OS on a 64-bit capable system? I don't see the point.

Well, for me, what's the point in using a 64 bit install that I can just provide 4gb of ram for? At just 4 gb ram the 64 bit, to me, is not faster than a 32 bit on 4 gb. So I can spread the ram among my toys equally. Besides I don't do anything on these machines that requires more than a 32 bit os with 3 gb ram. That's what I have the Asus that has amultiple 64 bit os's and 16 gb of ram for.

In my opinion, there still is no point to use a 32 bit OS even over the premise of not needing more than 4GB of RAM. It doesn't make the system work better. In fact, there are several advantages of using a 64 bit OS and applications other than just using more RAM.
