When I get home tonight I'll see if I can walk you through it.
It's cool that Firefox already has this, but this is actually on the desktop in Vista!
It's very cool.
Start up your computer and immediately see the most recent threads, without even having to launch a browser.
I have only been using it for less than a week, but at this point I think I would recommend the upgrade to Vista if your computer will handle it. It is definitely a resource hog, but for the average user there is just some plain ol' cool features. For the tech side, a lot has changed, but it's not unmanageable.
Best part is that there is a CompUSA that is closing and having massive sales. They just marked stuff down to 30-50% off, and Vista was one of the things 50% off. Can't beat getting Vista Ultra (upgrade) for $129 instead of $255! Thank goodness we happened to have some extra this week... (And I let our IT guy know about it too, so he got 20 copies for the company - and saved us about $3000 in buying them earlier than planned
