ISS getting ready for a new computer system


The International Space Station crew is doing some spring cleaning this week to get ready for an upcoming computer upgrade. Related and unrelated novelties include 10 times faster networking and a brand new window and camera combo which was installed last week. No word on what kind of specs (or Clarissa enhancements) the new computer will boast of, we suppose it all depends on if our astronaut friends have decided to make the Vista plunge (we hear the excitement of zero gravity gymnastics is closely rivaled by Windows Flip 3D) or instead wait for SP1 to iron out some of those zero-day "random life support system shutdown" bugs everyone's been griping about. Oh the decisions!
