    That computer was badly infected with Windows. It is enough work maintaining one version of Windows, but to have several, definitely not for me.

    The article i read said thet it is 32 different operating systems, but if u included different versions, i think it was actually more like 50! lol

    The article i read said that the guy made it because his mate doubted it was possible!! There's always one smart bugger that does that sort of stuff lol
