comment directory junction vs directory symbolic link?
I'm confused about the junction link above. Is the source of that folder on Bob's computer?

comment Is it possible to have preloaded usb drivers for device
@Ramhound There is no problem with the devices. I'm unclear what you mean. Switching with the KMV is equivalent of unplugging a usb device from one pc and plugging it into another except without the physical exertion of going under the desk to do the deed of unplugging and plugging. Instead I just press a button. It's a switch.

comment Is it possible to have preloaded usb drivers for device
@ernie I know the USB will toggle with the KVM, but can the machines themselves can be configured to ignore the toggle (I mean I know that the toggle cuts off the access of the device to the computer) but since the same device is going to be on that exact spot when the toggle returns, why re-initiate the drivers again? Can't the computer just keep the driver active and ignore it's inaccessibility. So instead of detecting when the usb mounts unmounts. Just pretend it's always mounted even if inaccessible. I don't know if I am being clear. (The KMV btw has no ps/2, it's ports are all usb)

comment Are there any alternative RSS Gadget for Windows 7?
I can't figure this application out, I just get "You need to select a category first" with no clear indication of how to do that. The manual doesn't help either.

comment Linux Laptop External VGA output is out of range
@pjc50 Well since the laptop has no backlight I really can't tell. I had to use a lamp to see a login screen and password. (Meaning it boots in X) Then I had to install ssh before I could connect to it using my other computer in my network. From what I could tell the CrunchBang uses gdm, I didn't look for xdm. I'll try the logs tonight.

@pjc50 I get the message from the monitor. I do have a display during bootup but both monitors I have will give out once it boots passed the textmode

comment Why are start-up times faster on Windows 7 than on XP?
Was the comparison made against a 32-bit version of XP and a 64-bit version of Win 7? Without having read the link you posted, my opinion would be that Windows 8 in reality is just Windows 7 with an added level of modernity on top of the same exact structure. Probably sprinkled in with improvements here and there. Which would probably mean that the same could be explained between 7 and xp as well. Edit - No I don't think it would be for the same reasons. That post clearly states that 8 creates a hibernation file for the kernel which would significantly increase the speed. It's a big difference

comment Booting a virtual machine non-virtually
@AndersonGreen It's been a year since I answered but I believe that is what I meant. I've never tried that myself however. I don't see why it would not work but I can see why it would be slow. I personally carry two USB, one encrypted and one with a live boot with the files required to unlock it.
