    Thank you.

    Rather than hijack this thread with further questions, I'll start a new thread.

    I have wiped out Windows partitions month ago,
    since I haven't booted into XP for very long time
    and using NTFS partitions for my data seems awkward

    I recently whacked the Windows 7 side of my Alienware m18x. The 12.10 install was a little difficult because I wanted to use software RAID. I also ran into some trouble installing my nVidia drivers because the apt dependencies were missing the relevant kernel-header source deb, but it wasn't anything I couldn't work through.

    I'm a recent convert from Fedora, and so far it's awesome!

    Did you try to manually install the .run file form Nvidia's website? This is not necessary in Ubuntu unless you need the newest version maybe.

    I have been M$ free since win-3.11, have been using OS/2 for many years, have been playing with Linux on/off for many years.

    Since 2006 I have mainly been using Ubuntu, still have my trusty old OS/2 tower and fire it up now and then, and my web server is OS/2 based (lots of security in obscurity ), but nowadays I'm primarily for Linux, on my laptop, media centre and phone (Nokia N9/MeeGo)

    I love linux, and have been using it for about 6 years now. Unfortunately I have not been able to give windows the "boot".
    I still love to game, and my hardware is never cutting edge enough that I can take the performance hit from running games under wine. When more mainstream games offer native linux clients, windows will go in the trash for good.

    Hey, you're a bit early with the April fool's jokes aren't you?

    I use it in a virtual machine when I'm home and not working. I'm stuck with Win 7 for my IT job.
