I have no intention of deserting ubuntu and going back to Windows. It's
just that with instances like this, I sometimes run Windows to do
something that I don't know how to do in ubuntu. In this case, I used
ubuntu to download a file that was supposed to go into a ntfs system.
My Windows XP is used by my great-grandchildren when they visit. They
bring their own CDs.
