    The only way to run Zune with Linux, to my knowledge, is to install it on a Windows virtual machine. There are number of threads under 'Virtualization' related to this.

    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 11.10 - An Office 2007 moment

    I'd suggest trying out elementaryOS. It's based on Ubuntu 10.10, supports whatever apps you can find in Software Center, etc.

  10. [xubuntu] Re: How can I adjust the font sizes for different things like in gnome?

    One thing you could try is using a different file manager, such as Marlin or PCManFM.

    Also, I think you used HTML tags instead of Code tags in your earlier post, so it got all screwed up.

    This is true. For those that like docks, I'd also recommend Plank (a stripped down version of the popular Docky). You can install it with
