Heh, it's offering me a pain in the tail, so far. I do notice that Java
seems slower... for whatever reason. I have my Lucid 32bit DVD, so I
JUST MIGHT do as you did, regress this entire business to Lucid with my
tail between my legs. But, I'll have to order the 64 bit version.
On-disk has been pretty good to me, I highly recommend them. They just
emailed me and told me that KDE is not in the big DVD they offer any
more. I can live with that. I'll install that bit from the web, no prob.
Thanks! Ric
