Over the years, I have been asked repeatedly: “What kinda games you got on all those PC’s of yours?”. My answer has invariably: “Well, not very much at all.” I have to confess that I am not much of a gamer and never have been, much to the disappointment of friends – both male & female – family members, in-laws, etc. I’m just not “game oriented”. (It probably originated in my total lack of athletic ability and has migrated to board, card and electronic games.) Indeed, the top three games in my quite small pantheon of electronic amusements are:

  1. Tetris
  2. Sokoban
  3. Centipede

Another game that I have played on the computer from time to time is the old XP version of Space Cadet Pinball. Perhaps, some of you liked it as well. Since Windows XP is riding off into the software sunset, you might want take this game over to Windows 7.

Tech Republic’s Windows Blog offers detailed instructions on just how to move Pinball from XP to Windows 7. The instructions are pretty straightforward and the only thing you’ll need is either an old XP machine that still runs or a copy of the XP installation DVD. (Fortunately, I have both!) Once I get this going on Win 7, I’m going to try running it in Windows under Ubuntu – a nice way to spend a couple of hours.
