yup, and mine sweeper, notepad, calculator, telnet, and i guess that’s about it….

telnet? What’s that?

iwamoto's avatar

it’s a small program that is best used to talk to routers when programming them, it’s commonly used when configuring cisco routers and switches, it’s a pain because it registers every keystroke, so the backspace too

well ok, it’s used for a lot more, it’s a bit of an equivalent of the terminal, meaning that you can use it to log into remote servers etc.

here’s the works

however, if you choose to use vista…you get mahjong, so that’s something to think about…

windows xp also gives you a start menu : )

Windows comes bare unless you buy it with a computer and then you get all kinds of crap with it.
