Hello Linux World.

I have played with Open source for a long time. But I have finally migrated completely away from the Evil Bill Gates computers. We had a 6 year old machine with XP that worked fine. Until, it got buggy, unable to reboot, or crashed for no reason. I suspect possibly the Shell LNK attack. But there is always another Backdoor for Microsoft to crash your computer or turn it into a bot. There was an old Xandros on the same machine that worked without crashing. So I installed Ubuntu over the XP and also installed Debian on two Powerspec desktops and a Toshiba laptop.

There is some bugginess in that the Powerspecs do not boot with KDE 4. But I can live with GNome. I prefer KDE 3.5 looks and stability.

I always seem to end up here, in Linux Questions, frequently finding good solutions. So I might as well officially join the Kool Kidz!
