What's the big deal, Microsoft has the right to, and should be protecting their OS from running illegaly. This patch then shouldn't bother you, if it does, then you're running an illegal OS. You should have it legally, if you don;t and dont like that, don't run it to begin with.

3D acceleration doesn't work, because it emulates a virtual video card (it does not virtualize your full card), and it's like 8mb of vram. Maybe one day they'll tie it in with CI.

We cannot provide that on these forums in america, it's a violation of the DMCA.

In Topic: The Ultimate Web Browser

On mac, safari. It's what comes with OS X, works nicely and streamlined for me, and is perfectly fast with my 8Mbps cable connection.
For Windows IE7/IE7+ on Vista. I know this may get eaten up, but as long as I browse safely, and have an AV, IE is fine, and it's the fastest browser I've ever used, it's very compatible, and I just like IE7+'s interface. IE6 is fine for Xp too.
Linux/Unix/BSD: Firefox. Opera to me is just trying to be too much for a browser, while it's lightweight, and sometimes debatably faster, and does pass the ACID test, it just has too many incompatabilities for me. It is easier to compile though. Not only that, but most distros just come with Firefox/Thunderbird/Sunbird already included, and they're integral to the system with custom theming and auto updates.
Overall: I'll take IE7+ on Vista first, Safari on Mac second, and Firefox on Linux third.

I'll copy all that into text and post it for later, but for now:
Type: nVidia GeForce FX5500
Bus: PCI
Slot: J7B2
VRAM (Total): 256 MB
Vendor: nVIDIA (0x10de)
Device ID: 0x0326
Revision ID: 0x00a1
Displays:
Display:
Resolution: 1280 x 1024
Depth: 32-bit Color
Core Image: Supported
Main Display: Yes
Mirror: Off
Online: Yes
Quartz Extreme: Supported

Really wierd, the kext info is gone, and as most of you probably know this card isn't supported, and the PCI slot certainly isn't. I didn't do Macvidia or anything either. Strange, but I'm not complaining. It's just a BFGtech overclocked 5500FX PCI card.
