Me too!  :-)

And the GNU/Linux (bash) shell is soooooo much nicer than the DOS prompt

GNU/Linux offers a lot of choice, which is a good thing: icons to launch
programs, Alt-F2 for launching one-off apps, or even just from the
terminal command-line -- it's all good, whatever works at the moment...

Yeah, I'm not sure what you mean by "various command line features"
either, but here's a tip anyway.  I always bind the 'F12' key to 'Open a
terminal window' under the 'Preference/Keyboard Shortcuts'.  Then I just
have to hit F12 to open a gnome-terminal window -- handy if you find the
command-line useful  :-)

Have Fun with GNU/Linux,
