At some point me need to go blue ray. I have 2 TB of HD. I can't back
that up anymore with DVD. If I had 2 sided blue ray disks it would be
perfect. My current way to backup is to just buy more HDs. Watching
blue ray on my computer is great but all I have so far are promos that
I got off the web.

I am shocked that that old computer can run KDE. Mine can't. I run
Lubuntu on my small slow machines and it rocks!
