Lol. Yes I love that.

I'll be off to the internet cafe, use the mobile to call some foreigner who will call the local technician to come by sometime between 2009 and 2015.

It's called progress.

But a car...

It makes sense, but a trains forte is bulk freight or passengers.

Car drivers should be ashamed if most of their commute is spent in a virtual parking lot. Maybe now we can get the Gov to put trams (or bus lanes) everywhere in the interest of the environment.

What about helicopters?

XP is less resource hungry and Micro$oft is harming everyone who buys 2nd hand low spec hardware. Mostly Russians.

RE: Amiga x86 erm actually

"If only they'd ported AmigaOS to X86 hardware... *sigh*"

There is AROS (Amiga research OS) for x86. Fully working. I haven't tried it yet but the screenshots are nice.
