comment Is it legal to migrate my operating system to another machine?
another thing to consider is that many OEMs (ala Dell, HP, etc) put some protection in the install disc preventing you from installing it on a computer from another manufacturer.

comment How can I set Windows 7 up to use three monitors?
@typoknig Since his mobo accepts only one GPU that means he cannot just add a new video card with a single output because SLI/Crossfire doesn't work on him computer. The OP would either have to buy a new fairly expensive triple output video card or use the USB-DVI converter @edusysadmin recommended. I guess you didn't read my answer fully. :-)

@Phoshi exactly, there isn't any good reason (in microsoft's opinion) to put the effort into enabling IE9 on XP

@Karim The graphics improvement isn't just for actual images, it's also used for text, css & javascript handline. I don't think they are actually going to lose any browser marketshare because of this decision though. Most people using IE, I believe, will probably stay on IE 8 and not necessarily switch to another browser.

@Karim I believe IE9 is about more standards compliance, more security, and faster operation.

@zzzzBov true, but many of the programs today that run on top of Unix or Linux would not run on the earlier versions of their respective OS. And even though XP SP3 came out just a few years ago, the underpinnings of the operating system are 10 years old. Imagine trying to run the latest software on Ubuntu 4.10, which btw, Canonical stopped supporting in 2006.

@zzzzBov Who would continue to write new software and updates for a decade old software package? It makes no sense from a management, technical, or financial overhead POV.
