Wubi installer together with Bulletproof X is a combination that most new users can actually try and almost no chances of bad experiences and lost data.


* Sigh *

I just wished they'd pack the xorgconfig stuff together with their "Bullet Proof X" ... I've been using the beta for at least a month, but I had to handwrite my whole xorg.conf file to get my X running at my preferred resolution (1152x864@75Hz).

at least dpkg-reconfigure used to help, but now all it gives me is keyboard options.

Fortunately I have no problems in handwriting config files, and probably could have done it with something else to generate, but it was just faster to write it than to search for something to generate it.
