@josiph Yes it is; check out the feature description here: microsoft.com/windows/internet-explorer/features/easier.aspx "Click the Compatibility View toolbar button to display the website as viewed in Internet Explorer 7"

Can Linux write to NTFS partitions safely? I was under the impression this was still quite experimental.

As best I can tell, the NAS uses software RAID. Viewing one of the drives using a freeware utility for Windows, the volume is listed as "Linux RAID Volume" - LVM, perhaps? I couldn't view any of the contents of the volume using the software, unfortunately.

comment Pros and cons of 64bit vs 32bit Windows
In my experience (using Vista x64 at work and Win7 x64 at home) this is much less of an issue than it used to be.

comment Boot issues after thunder storm
@joshhunt My question isn't an exact duplicate of the one you linked to, as my computer was still able to POST, I think. I got a couple of beep codes out of it, e.g., when I took out all the RAM.
