@the Lu list:
Just to note that this wifi issue showed up in the Apple Users forum today,
where a gent was complaining about a "broken ethernet port" and asking how
he could get his PB set up with Lubuntu . . . .  I posted farinets comments
there along with some other comments . . . .

Thanks for the reply to my post, just wanted to reiterate that, although I
did post a comment on the sound lp bug report, that isn't a "show-stopper"
for my personal use; but, the dragging of windows that doesn't follow the
mouse movement . . . is . . . that would be enough to get me to delay
installing, same thing with slow scrolling in a browser . . . .
Thanks for the thoughts on "xcompmgr" . . . I don't think I'd want to
recompile the kernel to fix the sound problem, but if "xcompmgr" would fix
the erratic window dragging phenomenon, then I might try out 14.04 on the
iBook . . . right now it seems to exceed my skill level to work with it as
a base system . . . .
