  1. Using 2k or XP, at startup (doing the 3 finger salute) using Task Manager, under processes (not applications) just how many do you have running?

    Don't forget to subtract one for Task Manager itself running at the time and let the system settle down after the desktop shows since some M$ processes shut down after a few seconds.

    25 processes right now, but it's a fresh install which hasn't been tweaked yet, so some will go away, and others take their place.

    Hmm...28 here. I think this is pretty much near the average here.
