Thanks Nils.  I may not be ready to add another style.  I am struggling 
through learning Linux operation using Kubuntu.  Do you really think I 
should try Xubuntu?  I have seen your helping name so many times, I will 
do as you say, it is just I am having so much trouble learning Kubuntu 
and I have been working a couple of years.  I may just be too stupid, 
but I am not going to give up.  I wouldn't go back to microsoft if they 
paid me. 

My printer is down; I went to a friend's to make a copy from my thumb 
drive.  While the drive was opening, I got a virus alert; by the time I 
checked all the boxes leaving that up to my friend, I got another 
interruption for spyware.  When I answered all it's boxes, I got an 
interruption from from Microsoft for a security alert.  There was more, 
but it needn't be reported.  Needless to say, it will be easier to learn 
the proper use of the terminal than to stand the frustration of the 
interruptions provided by a Microsoft PC.

Plus, everything in Linux seems rather selfless help.  With Microsoft, 
you have so many hands in your pocked, you wonder your sex.
