So I get a new desktop computer and the winner is Notes - and the games too :)

So it was time to get a new desktop. My old one was 5 years old and was having power issues. Plus, with Starcraft 2, Rage, and a few other games coming out, it was time :-) So here is what I got: Dell Dimension XPS 9000 i7 9.2 @ 2.67 Ghz 9 Gigs Ram 128 Gig SSD Boot Drive 1 TB 7200 Data Drive BluRay Drive DVRW Drive Dual ATI Radeon HD 5870 (cough) 28" Widescreen TouchScreen Monitor I also have Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit on this. A gaming machine for sure, but I will use it work when at home. TweetDeck screams on this as does Chrome. But Notes is the real winner. Why? I installed Notes 8.5.2 CD4 Standard Client. No plug-ins besides anything in the core installer. I set the Notes program directory on the SSD and the data folder on the regular drive. Sametime and Activities are turned on. I set Notes to use Workspace as the home page. I then reboot and launch Notes. With Sametime auto-launching into 3 communities (PSC, Bleedyellow, LotusLive). Times: Cold boot: 15 seconds Warm boo
