    :shock: I didn't see Plado, which from the description looks good and could work for me. The download is only available for direct download not from utorrent. I tried by direct link to get Kubuntu that way but it failed twice. Once Slackware is done downloading, maybe I'll try again. The latest release of Mint is awesome, packed with options, it's blue instead of green in the startup. It has a side-by-side file manager like I want if at all possible.

    I use "Total Commander" in Windows now and would be lost without it or something like what Mint has packaged. Total Commander allows me to snoop where others would not dare go. I used a DOS file manager Norton Commander back in the days of DOS and when everything went windows I had to look for something to make me feel at home. It was called Windows Commander back in it's early releases, a shareware program - try before you buy. I bought for about 20-30 bucks and even though it has gone through a name change, and several revisions the same registration key still works. That's support!

    BTW, I will not be trying to test all the Linux OSs out there, but I'm looking for one that I feel I could work with for Internet use mostly, but I do like OpenOffice and FireFox, which I use both in windows now. I still kept MS Office for PowerPoint and Word. I am gradually converting to the writer in OpenOffice and have started using the spreadsheet in OO.

    Well, got to get busy, it is supposed to rain the next two days and I have a lot of work to get done outside. Gardens to work at, dirt to move, new barn to wire, and one of these days I have to crawl under the house and install all these computer wires I have been tripping over. [lolol]

    Just a slight bump on this, I did test a few 5-6 different downloads of Linux before settling on PCLinuxOS which, if you've been following my thread and regular updates, you know how it has gone. Only one problem I've not yet been able to solve with Linux is not being able to mount a 500GB Seagate external.

    Results over all with Linux went from total freeze up to excellent, with Mint 4 KDE-CE coming in first on the live CD on my wife's Dell and PCLinuxOS being the very best on my HP laptop, both live CD and installed.

    Conclusion: If you've the nerve to jump into Linux, and you've got an Intel processor, try the Ubuntu or Mint downloads. Run the live CD, check out sound, video, and online use, making sure you're comfortable with it. If you have little or no experience with installing operating systems, partitioning drives or no way to bail yourself out, stay clear. HP users, might want to try PCLinuxOS first, as it has close to a windows look about it. Even though the install is not too difficult, even an old guy like me figured it out, I'd say that the help file in PCLinuxOS was very well written and saved the day for me, walking me right through it step by step.
