comment Automatic driver search & update on Windows?
Sometimes the easiest path is to use something like CPU-Z to identify the hardware and then download the drivers from the manufacturer.

comment Program installer requires .NET framework 2.0 but I already have it
Sometimes I wonder about the seriousness of MS developers. I feel trolled every now and then.

What an effing mess.

comment .NET Framework 4 backwards compatibility
I cannot understand this. Why? It's not that much changed, just new features added, but the CLR shouldn't have changed much, has it? Flash, Java, etc. can run older code, why can't .NET?

comment What is 1e100.net and why do I have TCP ports open to it?
@AlanB That policy makes sense only when you don't think about it. If it couldn't "determine the real URL from this information", then how the heck could it tell if it's a phishing/malware site? Besides, "partial copy of the site's URL" could mean anything, and I bet it at least contains the full domain name. Bottom line: Google can know all the sites you visit unless they really don't wanted to (which frankly doesn't seem the case).

comment What font does CMD.exe use by default for output in Windows XP?
Weird, because I don't have a 85775.fon file. But I understand that the filenames are different from the family names.

comment Are .fon (bitmap font) files needed in Windows XP?
In the end, this is how it looks: i.imgur.com/Gl77i.png (I kept some such as Impact so as not to break the look and feel of naive websites that use that crapfront).

Well, I guess people really don't notice that kind of thing (I think I'd do, since I'm a little pedant with fonts), and this is not for my use anyway. Given a choice, probably normal people prefer a PC that runs fast and looks good from a distance.

I'm curious, there's a few missing, such as italics, I think you don't miss them, do you?

comment Are .fon (bitmap font) files needed in Windows XP?
Well, I'm shaving off as much as I can in order to leave in more visible stuff (such as ClearType, Themes, etc). I want it to feel responsive, even if it's installed on a low-end laptop.

Do you know which font is used? I see no Terminal.fon there :(

Do you know if the CMD console emulator doesn't need them too?

comment Are .fon (bitmap font) files needed in Windows XP?
Gabe: well, I'm trying to make a setup that works for PCs on the range of 512-768 MB of RAM. Since I'll only have to do this one time, I wanted to know if it can be done safely.

@JohnChadwick Problem is, I don't know what that font is. Indeed the only place where I see a bitmap font is in the cmd.exe terminal emulator window.
