A Rude Surprise

OK, so I got Ubuntu installed and slowly running (slowly, until the replacement RAM comes in. I hope.) so the next step should be to install stuff I want to run on it, right? I downloaded a bunch of such installation files from work and put them on CDs to load up at home. As it turns out: Ubuntu doesn't like RPM files - you have to use something called deb files to load new software. Of which I have none. Aaargh! I guess this is why they call what I'm doing the "School of Hard Knox". Thank God OpenOffice installed with the OS -- at least I can do <strong>something</strong> with it before Monday, when I'll be surreptitiously seeking and copying these deb files for the stuff I want to use. Or try to use, anyway...
