Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Literally, the only thing keeping my WinXP partition around is Photoshop. It's been a decade-long annoyance. "Use Gimp!" No thankyou.

Now if Apple could just put out an iMac with a decent video card or some hardware that's upgradable (*stiffles laughter ... sighs*) I could overload on uber-geekiness.

I hear you. Luckily I don't have proprietary or workplace demands so don't need to get stuck with WinXX to do what I need.
