By way of a bit of an update......

So, I've been through various distro's, most successfully but some not so.

I've currently settled on Ubuntu and got the 9.10 version installed.

I was using KDE for my desktop, but when "they" started using KDE4 by default, I got so frustrated trying to understand how to do stuff that came naturally with KDE3, I said "bollocks" to it and installed gnome.

I don't quite understand why, because until then, whenever I tried gnome, I was getting myself so confused, that I'd have just gone back to KDE, but for some reason, on this occasion gnome "just clicked". More stuff worked "straight out of the box" and it seemed more straight forward than it had previously done.

I've got used to the default stuff, like having the taskbar at the top of the screen, and the open windows listing buttons on the bottom and all that kind of stuff, so I'm now happily plugging away with gnome and KDE is only installed for my partner as she is so stubborn that she won't try gnome.

Hey ho!

I still don't like having to use sudo, I much prefer the more traditional "user and root" arrangement of most other distro's (having an extra root password/account is more reassuring to me.....) but it's too much hassle to change it and try to uninstall/remove sudo so I'll just have to lump it won't I
