[filmscanners] Re: Firewire Card

Howard & Art,

I have had XP Pro for several months and am delighted with it after 20 yrs
of other operating systems (and NikonScan and Vuescan seem to work perfectly
with it). However, even Bill Gates cannot imagine and therefore prevent all
the things that other software writers or users will try to do to his
operating system. I have had XP crash three times in several months. Once
this was due to using old software that did not pretend to be XP compatible;
once it was due to using new software that did claim to be XP compatible,
and once was due to me trying to be clever but actually being very stupid!
However, the new error reporting system seems to work well, and should
ultimately sort out even these problems.

Reading the frequent posts from users of Mac 9.x and X systems, suggests
that Bill isn't the only one who can't read everyone's mind.

That's why planes flown by computers have several computers running with
different operating systems, so that they can't all make the same mistake at
the same time. If expensive dedicated software like this can't be perfect,
why should we expect cheap consumer software like Mac or Windows OS's to be
perfect. Very little (nothing?) else in life is!

C'mon now Art, this is Windows XP (it can take you wherever you want to go
today) and Mr. Bill has assured me that it will never crash  :>)

<< As odd as this might sound for a MS product, that is, in principle, all
 that is involved.  However, I have found it is usually wise when adding
 hardware to a MS OS to rest your vocal cords for several days prior, in
 case you require them for a session of screamed 4 letter words, when you
 whole system locks up during reboot and you can't even get a safe mode
 screen to open ;-)
