First up, I'm not a *nix user. I'm not a programmer. So please be mindful of this when you guys set fire to my arse. I have to say it - No version of Linux has ever looked good. Apart from redundant/duplicate GUI commands, it's just plain butt-ugly. There. I said it.

Runs away...

OK, I should qualify. I've been hurt. I never had any problems installing lunuxes alongside my Win installs until Ubuntu. I deliberately made main & swap partitions before installing 6.06 and it still arsed up my machine. Doubtless due to my own lack of tech knowledge dealing with boot managers etc., but there has to be a better way. Dell installing it from source is a beginning. But folks, it's not all that great out of the box.
