    RE: xterm
    That worked perfectly, thanks :) I looked through the manual, but I obviously didn't look far enough :P

    xterm
    Is there a way to load xterm up at a specific location on the screen [bottom right]? I'm setting up a screenshot command with scrot for a hotkey, the window now loads up at a small size but in the middle of the screen which makes the screenshot look ugly :P This is the command I have. xterm -geometry 80x5 -e "scrot -cd 5 /home/jim/screenshot.png" I'm running Ubuntu and Openbox.

    RE: Why Linux ! !
    Why Linux? I remember seeing the name somewhere in a magazine when I was young; I didn't really make much of it. About a year ago I heard the name again, and decided that it would be interesting to try. I installed Ubuntu, not really knowing or thinking about FOSS, it was just "a new thing(TM) ". I didn't get too far, as I couldn't get it connected to the internet, my wireless card wasn't supported. Later that year I tried again with another card, which worked. I don't think I've looked back since! I've also come to embrace FOSS software (this is always my first question), and I now advocate opening up almost everything. Linux has changed my political views :P
