Apol for late response. I must echo all these sentiments. Big Up,
Albert! As a newbie I don't know what is supposed to work, what is
broken and what is user error, so Albert's orginal check list of
problems proved invaluable to me because I was trying to resolve so many
of these same issues. Buggy multimedia playback is by far the most
irritating factor, followed by unpredictable cut and paste between apps.

It bothers me immensely that Linux evangelists are either in denial
about the massive deficiencies in Linux, or otherwise are not
traditional desktop PC users.

I have encountered so many problems with (K)ubuntu (considered to be
amongst the best distros) that I may be obliged to go back to Windows of
proprietary Linux (Linspire) after 5 months of ceaseless debugging.

I may not be a hacker, but I am a geek and a technologist, so if I can't
get it working then Linux may not be ready for prime time as is often
