Thanks for the explanation. I was hoping you would explain. It now has
me thinking about making a switch. Although not until I get a better
machine. I'm trying to see much of a low cost system I can put together
and the machine I am running Ubuntu on just isn't up to speed
(literally). I went with Ubuntu because I'm new to Linux and wanted
something fairly easy to set up. I had heard that Kbuntu is more Windows
like and since I was starting out with something new I thought I would
really experience the difference. I don't mind using Windows. Just
wanted to try something new.
