hey, thank you soo much for not asking "how do i hack" lol. i would have killed myslef. um to answer your questions, yes u can hack with windows. to tell you the truth you can do most of your hacking without a computer, "art of deception" is a good book for explaining that that. also you dont NEED to get a nother computer, just partition your hard drive and run a linux distro off that (if ur new to linux i suggest mandrake-cuz its free, or maby even invest in redhat. it is a nice one) u can find out how to partition harddives on line. cuz i am too lazy to explain it.
i think that just about overs most of your questions.
