Yeah I installed Windows 7 RC yesterday, and could view a web page in under
15 minutes from installation start.

Certainly

No matter what the anticipated result, there will always be
someone eager to (a) misinterpret it, (b) fake it, or (c) believe
it happened according to his own pet theory.

Can you change the system fonts in W7?

(Like the tabs on any Properties pane for instance.....?)

I just did not provide the sarcasm tags

To hallucinate you need some brain cells to begin with. So he hasn't that
option, too

I just found out that the brain is like a computer.
If that's true, then there really aren't any stupid people.
Just people running Windows.

1. Burn the ISO to CD.
2. Place the newly-burned CD into your CD/DVD drive.
3. Reboot your computer.
4. When the boot process reaches the screen where you have the option to
either install Ubuntu or try it without installing, pick the latter
option.
5. Sit back for ten or fifteen seconds while the live CD starts Ubuntu.

Burn a bootable CD from the iso, re-start your computer and choose "boot
from CD" from the start-up settings.
The CD will run Ubuntu in RAM, enabling you to see what it's like
without doing anything to your current OS.
It's called "LiveCD"....
