Hi there ........
Sorry if I'm slightly off-topic here. Over Easter, I decided to update
my six-year old Linux so I could test a recent BibleTime with NET. I
was amazed at how easy it was to install Debian compared with a few
years ago. I wrote to the Debian folk to congratulate them, and one of
them wrote off list to say if I thought Debian was easy, I ought to try
Ubuntu. I did. I'm even more amazed! Much, much easier than
installing Windows on a PC. And Ubuntu let me install binary packages
of both BibleTime and GnomeSword .... just fantastic!
So - if any PC user out there is thinking of going for Linux now's the
time. Ubuntu is Gnome-based. If you lean towards KDE, there's it's
cousin Kubuntu. Both are derived from Debian, but are designed to make
the process of moving over easy for the pc user.
