Thanks. I've been a big fan of Ubuntu for quite some time. I've tried commiting to it several times but found myself going back to Windoze for one reason or another. I'm giving it a shot again. And I'm finding I like Xubuntu that much more. KDE and Gnome, I think, are beginning to suffer from feature bloat and get slower with each new release. Xfce is just right for what I enjoy and keeps my system running as fast as it can while still enjoying a nice desktop.

My most serious disappointment is some kind of 'design beats usability' standing in.
I.E. the 'save file'-dialogs open allways with a closed folder-item, in a very small window, even if hundrets of files are in there.

And my home is called 'Pers�nlicher Ordner' which isn't of much help to newbies, and an annoyance for the 'old boys'. I guess it's contra productive if a newbie is searching for 'personal folder' on the hard drive with a different tool like 'locate', 'cd' or even gui programs like firefox or konquereror.
I have to compare this to xubuntu, which is on my seldomly used desktop, while my frequently used laptop uses ubuntu (gnome).
