My desktop is my avatar, or when it's gone Lon Chaney's face during the unmasking scene in the 1925 Phantom of the Opera, tiled.

When I first put it on and my mom saw, she fell out of the chair.

Only had Ubuntu since... Two days ago. Am doing rather well so far. If anyone can PM me with a list of some essential programs and what-not, I'd appreciate it. Also I have that Terminal icon that big because it's so-friggin-important. But thats in a good way of course.

[Oops, left the website where I got the wallpaper from. It was blank so I stuck one on quickly. ]

If you get Automatix it will install most essential programs automatically for you.

Quoted for emphasis.

The first time I used Ubuntu, I didn't know about Automatix, and spent about 2 days finding out what all In needed to get and install and whatnot. Automatix does it in less than half an hour on my net connection

Just reinstalled Ubuntu today. Its been a long chain of operating systems. Went back to windows due to me messing up Ubuntu, reinstalled Windows, tried to put SUSE on but couldn't as DVD that I waited a month for was corrupt, went back to windows but got about 5 viruses before I even could put SP2 on there even though I only went on 2 websites. So, windows can stuff it's self, I'm back to Ubuntu. Pretty good for only having it again for 3 hours or so. Need to get Beryl on it again.

You must not be behind a firewall/router because I've never had any viruses on windows before I set up a firewall or install sp2. I think that routers help a lot if you're on a dedicated high speed connection.

that is why you shouldn't plug in your network adapter before installing SP2 a virus checker and firewall.

I've got a router, I just think I was a little unlucky. Think I might have turned its firewall off in the process of doing something though.

I would put SP2 and all of that stuff onto a disk, but I don't have a dvd/cd burner.

Hardware firewalls like that block ports rather than programs, they will not stop any virus using the ports that are open for use by your web browser/email client, you need a software firewall (zone alarm is a good free one) to stop that.

That is a problem, I would get a friend to burn you a copy in case you ever want to re-install windows again.

Do you know if that works with Twinview? I know XGL didn't, that's why I stopped using it, for while it's great eye candy, it's not worth being restricted to one monitor.
