MEHHHHH. Haha I blame living in savannah! Only know one person in my class who knows anything about tech.

None the less I meant that when I do get my laptop, I won't be putting on linux for a while, if at all.

Speaking of being noobish, how do i change the "Newb techie" thing. I haven't seen one, but like is there a post on all the ranks, and sigs, and stuff?

Yes, I got that. You can still try it in VirtualBox.

I believe, that once you get at a certain number of posts, might be 40, you can edit that. It's in your profile settings.

VMWare is a piece of cake, if you use VMWare player which is a free download it will mostly preconfigure it for you and can usually install your OS automatically from a disc image on your computer, you just need to select the file, give it a few details, walk away and leave it to do it's thing.
