I've been using the Windows XP PowerToy plugin "Power Toy Calc". Pretty neat little calc.

no it's a free add-on available from microsoft.com (search for Power Toys)

they're unsupported, but they have a couple nifty utilities.

the calc adds some conversions and lets you graph various functions.

The calculator included with Windows is like a cheap scientific calculator.

The Power Toys calculator is like a TI-83, but can't do regressions or store lots of information.
