Hi All;
         I'm 68 yr old white male who's been using Windows since Windows
for Work Groups 3.1.1 I just installed Kubuntu 16.04.3 on my Laptop. I've
done in the terminal Konsole, sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade,
Discover has updated 259 updates automatically. I've re-booted twice since
my install. I've searched the Internet for things (guides) to do after
fresh install, but not sure about some of the advice..? I've read some
e-books about "how to's" yet not much info on setting up the system for an
everyday PC usage... I read an article about KDE 5.8.8 and some
backports..? being available from the PPA..? Haven't installed it yet,
PPA's leave me a bit weary. I've tried Synaptic Package Manager but removed
it cuz I don't know what to look for..? No problems w/install, so this is
NOT Tech Support... just asking for advice for a "good System"..!  Thanks
in  advance,
