No problem.  Is that explained somewhere?  I didn't see it on the info page or in the welcome message.  

I just installed the metapackages including the desktop earlier today.  What kind of conflicts with the regular Ubuntu desktop are there so that I know what to look for.

Everything seems to be working okay so far including the RT kernel which I've been reading has some issue for certain setups.
