just FYI, ubuntu is built on the debian kernel.

It is really interesting, if one were to say "I like windows vista", it would not immediately digress into a vista-home vs vista-pro "real vista" comparison. But such is the nature of linux that it has come so far from it's server oriented roots that you can't talk about any flavor of it without a discussion about hyper-optimizing a closet full of headless linux boxes I'm talking about a desktop machine here though, to replace my XP box. Web browsers are kind of hard to use without a graphical display, as are paint programs

I don't think I even need XP for the house anymore since I have a handle on wine, was actually to lazy to move XP to the new box at the time, and decided it was time to revisit linux. Well, I'll probably miss avrstudio, and a few other select programs. I can just power that box up and remote control it if necessary though.
