    Somehow, I don't expect it to be that much different from 5536. Smiley

    Also, build number 5600... I'm sure that's a coincidence.

    Just like Windows 98 being build number 1998 was a coincidence, and DirectX 9 being build number 900 was too. Tongue Out

    Break those keys out and tape the hole over. Seriously. Those three keys are the worst idea ever in keyboard design.

    I had a keyboard like that on a server once. Now that was a bad idea. Perplexed

    Macs actually ASK you if you want to shut down when you press the shutdown key... 

    BTW, the cash registers at one of my previous places of employment had those kinds of keyboards...  once one of the managers got adventurous and pressed the "Suspend" key.  These were Win2000 machines, so when you bring them out of standby, the computer's locked-- except no one knew the password (these computers always stay on).

    Media Centre still hates my graphics card. Stupid Nvidia, anyone know if they are bringing out new drivers any time soon?

    If the length of time its taken for Vista Builds to become available on MSDN in the past is any indication...... you can install 5536 and play with it for a few months...
