I am happy to report, to any who cares to hear or even not, hell, feels good to report it, that my laptop is now first and foremost a Kubuntu laptop.

I converted my original XP MCE partition to a VM using VMWare Converter and installed VMWare Server and can still use Windows apps as needed. I even swapped out the original 74GB drive and installed a 160GB drive that is all Kubuntu with /home on its own partition (just finished moving it and rebooting). This is great. Wireless works. Multimedia works. Windows is still there but only on an as-needed basis and it's easily revertable to something stable. KMyMoney is an awesome program. OpenOffice is good enough for what I need.

Not much other information. Just wanted to post a success story.
