As a new pc. user with little tech savvy, can someone help me.
First, I note that my pc. does not have a "midi" port, which the book says is used for gaming, presumably for connection of joy sticks etc.
Does this mean that I cannot attach a stick or other device ? I would like to acuire and use a flight sim prog.
Second, I am buying a canon i865 printer, what are the pros and cons of using serial/usb2 connection? Thanks.

For the benifit of others, in the intervening three years, I've found that the printer works as fast as I need using the serial connection allowing me to free up a usb2 slot for more demanding hardware!
