For contesting (SO exclusively -- no networking) I run a legacy P-II
machine with 4 "real" RS-232 ports and CT DOS.  It's absolutely bulletproof
for my CT contesting needs, no muss/no fuss.

For all my other shack/office needs I have a super-duper 3GHz Win XP

Between the two is a simple 10MHz ethernet connection if I need to share
some files (the old machine can also be brought up on WIN98), and a 2x1
Belkin kbd/rodent/monitor-sharing switch.

This arrangement gives me the best of both worlds.

That's why!
