Heh, Broadcom wireless was an issue before I stopped keeping up with 
hardware ;-).

One thing I was concerned about was the issue someone raised a few weeks 
ago with a Lenovo, a new boot system replacing the bios?  Didn't pay 
attention then, of course, and now I can't find that thread ...

Have been running Kubuntu for several years, but thinking about checking out Ubuntu this time.  Would greatly appreciate any warnings or recommendations.
