Hi there, i'm Dave, did try suse 9 while back, quite liked it. ended up that machine got thrown out. Went back to windows with new one i bought, but im not to taken with windows. I'm still running XP which i prefer to vista, 7 or 8. I took the plunge earlier in the year and bought a new machine which had ubuntu 13.04 pre-installed on it when i bought it. It connected to the net then would dissconnect. I tried various forums, ideas etc etc till i got tired trying. I put it away and bought a Mac. I have dug it out and would like to use it so i joined here in the hope i might get it sorted out.
