Good points altogether but we can always wish, right? Nevertheless, the way
I see it either EasyUbuntu or Automatix sorts any problems. Honestly I think
Automatix is a bit toooo much and have not tried EasyUbuntu myself but I
would go EasyUbuntu. Did use Automatix on a Kubuntu and ended up with a fair
bit more than I felt I needed.

And I am happy to see I was wrong about the Nvidia / ATI drivers as I
believe those must be very much sought-after by users.

Sorry if I am off-topic now.
