I suppose that this is the logical approach.  Specifically, I have
10.04.1.  I have taken advantage of the opportunity to right-click
on menu items and move them to the desk-top as icons, ala Windows,
and I have followed the various directions to get the full-size, 
shrink-size, and store in systray dinguses moved from upper left of
the window to upper right, where they belong, and I have made the
thing work on single-click, as most other Linuxes do, and as I
have made Windows (XP and 7) do.  If any of that doesn't work anymore, I 
don't want the upgrade.  Perhaps someone knows, and will post the 
results.  If I have to find out the hard way, _I_ will post the results.


Blessed are the peacemakers...for they shall be shot at from both sides.
