Please add your operating system information

We are trying out a feature where new users are asked to specify their operating system when they register on the Forum. This information then appears in the user's profile and under their name in their posts. If we know a user's operating system this makes it much easier to provide assistance.

Existing users will notice that the operating system under their name says "Please select". We encourage you to go to your User Profile and select your operating system in the provided drop down box, and keep it updated if you change system. This will save you time when you post, as you won't need to write the information out each time.

Many thanks.

Thanks, Steve. I edited one minute after you and added Vista, which wasn't in the list. :? Perhaps you pressed Save above the list? That would probably not save the change. What I did was press "Profile type specific options" then save in the screen that appeared.

:) We're becoming too efficient.
Immediately after adding it I checked that it was present in my User Control Panel, and it was, but perhaps that was you. Anyway, I've checked again and Vista is only listed once.
