3/24    Can WinXP run different threads on different processors on a
        multiprocessor machine?  Or must they be different processes?
        \_ There wouldn't be much point to multithreading otherwise, would
           there?  Yes, multithreaded apps run better on SMP systems.
        \_ Can WinXP run different threads of a multi-threaded process on
           multiple CPUs?  Probably.
                           \_ yes.
                              \_ Confirmed now via direct testing on a dual
                                 Xeon. -op
           Can WinXP run multiple single-threaded processes on multiple CPUs?
           \_ What about on NT and Win2K?
              \_ The answers should be the same on NT and Win2K.  If the
                 question is, does any one do it better? then you got me.

5/27    Is there any way to get around the WinXP registration requirement,
        besides re-installing every now and then?  Has anyone tried this: set
        the CMOS date to Year 2010 or so, install XP, then set the date back to
        today.  Would that work?
        \_ Why don't you just get the corp edition and enter in a volume
           license key?

12/15   My laptop doesn't have the "windows" key and I run WinXP. How can I
        lock the desktop quickly since I can't do WINKEY-L ?
        \_ Winkey = Ctrl-Esc
           \_ Not exactly.  You can't chord with ctrl-esc.
        \_ Ctl-Alt-Del, enter.
           \_ this is what I was gonna suggest. the real question is how

2/17    Does WinME or Win2K Home Ed require less CPU power and memory?  Thanks.
        \_ cpu/memory?  That's the basis of your OS decision?  ME is a flaming
           pile of goose dung.  Use 2k.  There was never a reason for ME to
           ship except maybe MS's bottom line.
           \_ Yeah.  I'm setting up a PC for my wife, and all she does is
              running Excel and checking her Outlook mail in a browser over a
