I am having problems too. I suspect that a lot of people got upgraded, as I
did, without realizing what was happening until it was too late. Despite the
fact that LINUX is somewhat better than Windows I got burnt so many times
by the latest and greatest releases of DOS and Windows that I learned a
long time ago that it is very risky to be among the first adopters. I 
had a lot
of problems going from Windows to Ubuntu and am scared.

For a new users dealing with problems can be a big wall, or locked door.

I am hoping that the problems will be fixed with 9.10 and future upgrades
will include the fixes.
