I just installed Kubuntu on mine...overwrote Ubuntu. Gnome seems to always be a problem for me. It seems like I'm always fiddling with something. KDE on the other hand is quite content after setup and configuring. Maybe its just me. :P

Waiting on daughter. If you have women in your family you'll know there are no quick decisions.

You have no decisions to make. It's like being the head-tilting slobbering idiot sitting in the hall waiting for meds. :lol:
