    It's pretty much a stripped down version of XP. Just the kernal and what you need. Normally the size with everything should be around 15-50MB depending on what you are adding on the build. Drivers etc. Boots up really quick. I have a trial copy but the trial copy will only make builds that lasts about 45 days.

    Yes I have. I refuse to pay 1000 bucks for it though. If it was around 150 bucks, I'd go out and get it.

    Please take this as informative, and that I'm not trying to pick a fight, just trying to be technically correct.

    I've actually used an 80186 based computer. If I remember correctly, Intel revved the 8088 which had only a 8-bit data buswidth (chip used in the original IBM PC[tm] ) and developed the 80186 and 8086 at almost exactly the same time. Both the 8086 and 80186 were 16-bit buswidth (hence the final digit being a 6, rather than 8) but the 8086 was just a wide-bus 8088, while the 80186 had extra instructions and features, which made it do some things faster.

    I don't believe from my recollection that IBM ever put the 80186 into a PC, but some of the weirdo's like Kaypro (remember them?) and maybe the first gen Compaq (first PC maker to clone the PC BIOS...) had a 80186 CPU in it.

    Just to prove that I'm not blowing smoke... Google found this picture from a SEM showing that Intel actually etched the numbers "80186" into the silicon wafer inside the chip. (Of course, this photo could be as believable as those faked moon-landing shots NASA keeps showing...) http://micro.magnet.fsu.edu/chipshots/intel/80186.html

    edit: apparently, Intel also made a 80188 (like a 80186, but only 8-bit databus width) see http://www.hyperdictionary.com/computing/intel+80186 if you actually care...

    And, here's a very informative doc about Intel's early chip history. http://www.geocities.com/SiliconVall...ntel-Chips.htm

    So, 'wizardPC' are you calling Intel "no one" ?
