I'm reminded of the old saying "if it's not broke don't fix it". 12.04
has worked extremely well for me, but it and some of it's software is
getting pretty old. I dread moving to a new version because of all the
time and effort involved. I put in a new HD and then do a fresh install.
Being able to boot back and forth helps, but I have a ton of data and
programs to move and setup. I am still finding stuff I forgot.

I am using Nemo on my laptop. Just wanted to try out SpaceFM, if it
doesn't work out I will use Nemo.
