Husbands beware!

Posted 11-03-2009 at 10:40 AM by punch_t

I have been using linux for a couple of years now and would never go back to Microsoft. I had settled on Ubuntu jaunty 9.04 64bit which was running on an ASUS laptop and have been very satisfied with it. However at my last update I decided to upgrade to 9.10. What a mistake.
