I decided to treat myself to the new distribution(Ubuntu 9.10) for Christmas. My son helped me a bit. We had a problem with the audio and microphone but were able to fix it after playing with the mixer app.
It still isn't exactly what I want, but I think after playing around, I'll get it where I want it. It seems really great, though it'll take a while to get used to everything.
Happy Holidays everyone...
Make someone happy.... give them Linux.
