Thanks Al. I sinned and installed Mint 11. I admit it. I can't STAND
that HTML only community thing they have. I might as well be top-posting
in here at 300 baud. Maybe they bought up AOL for cheap and are using
that as a user/community front end, I dunno. It ain't for old-skool
text-email-only me. But, I don't like that Ubuntu web support thing
either. But, that's just me... old and crabby. 

I believed the hype, drank the kool-aid and installed it. I broke my
synaptic and now wear it like an albatross like the Ancient Mariner. I
swear Al, I repent, beg forgiveness and shall SIN NO MORE! But I will
continue to install KDE on top of Natty. 

I wonder is there is a way to turn-off the Mint components/packages to
make this install over into vanilla Natty? This install probably thinks
I'm in Berlin or something. :) Ric
