  1. boy, with Vista, XP/home, Xp/pro, XP/media ... we're having fun getting the
    posters environments.

    Any chance of a radio button in the thread create so as to identify
    the user's system? eg:

    Title: _______
    Vista( starter[] home[] premium[] business[] Enterprise[] Utlimate[])
    XP( home[] media[] pro[])
    OS X[]
    Linux[]
    Other[]
    Message: ......

    if the user's choice were to appear in the thread title,
    we would be more effective imo.

    There's alot of different information that each different forum would like automatically displayed. If we displayed everything everyone wants displayed, we'd be overwhelmed by information we don't need.

    Also, there's the problem with privacy issues. Not everyone wants you to know what OS they're running.

    Also, this piece of information doesn't really help much, except in a few select forums.
