comment What's the difference between surfing and downloading speed?
as mentioned in my answer, different browsers also support different numbers of concurrent connections--so older browsers may feel much slower because they allow fewer requests to run in parallel

@Gnoupi also, most browsers support the [CTRL]+[F5] shortcut to bypass the cache and reload the page 100% from the server

comment 64 bit Windows 7 + 32 bit windows XP dual boot?
...oh yeah, +1 for VirtualBox. Why pay a couple hundred for VMWare Workstation when you can get something that does very nearly as much (in some cases more) for free.

comment 64 bit Windows 7 + 32 bit windows XP dual boot?
Virtualization is an option, but it does often have hardware requirements and incurs a performance penalty on both the host and guest OS. For the OP's specific issue I'd agree that it would be the better choice, but not a definite.

comment What is Gnome / KDE etc?
The difficult part of understanding the different components of a Linux system versus Windows is that Windows rolls everything up into a ball and gives you the ball as a whole (filesystem, kernel, console, gui, applications, servies, etc...). Linux gives you alternative choices for nearly everything. It's like comparing a toy boat to a lego boat. The toy boat you're stuck with as it comes, the lego boat you can rip apart, extend, shrink, or swap out tons of pieces.

A perfectly valid point, but the metadata within could still be useful in determining the history of the image.

Aww!!! but what's the program that CSI uses?!?! lol, jk... I know there's no silver bullet, but have seen some proof-of-concept apps and was hoping the techniques had trickled down to some open-source utilities
