For example I am asked to run gedit. No problem, I go to Applications,
Accessories and select Text Editor. Problem, there is no heading
Applications. I could of course select a terminal and type gedit and
press enter - problem where do I find a terminal. I move on and I am
asked to run nautilus. As far as I am concerned nautilus is or was a
submarine.

When I first saw the email about testing I thought it was a great idea.
At my age time is not a problem and so I could start to learn about the
latest version of Ubuntu and, at the same time, return something to help
the developers. My fear now is that if I continue with more tests I may
produce misleading data causing the developers more hindrance than help.
