Hi Wesley

I did try out LinuxMint  but it had worse problems and very little support I did not like it
The one nice feature it had APTonCD came in a deb file
So I made the decision to switch back to Ubuntu when 11:10 was launched and added APTonCD to it so it got the best of Mint

I don't regret the move back to Ubuntu but I hate having to scroll to the bottom of a list of icons to click on one to change to another desktop frustrates me
I tried Compiz Fusion and Compiz Config Settings manager but i have not figured it out yet
and that is in another chat thread on this list server

So now I run every thing on one desktop AKA Microsoft Windows Linux until I get Compiz to work
