    GNOME is not useful at all for me. The menu system for applications is too cumbersome to navigate through my installed software applications. It's slow. I also don't like the GNOME user interface very much at all. There's too much mousing around, mouse clicks, and there is not enough space to add most of my favorite applications for quick launch. GNOME is boring to use.

    I think that I am not going to use it for a full week. I am exiting GNOME now.
    After reading a lot of your posts/threads I do not believe Linux is for you. You should install Windows 7 and stick with it, but ease back on your security measures you are using overkill methods that are bogging down your machine.

    You don't have to read what I decide to post online and tell me to use Windows 7. I am going to use Ubuntu because I like it a lot. I am not switching back to Windows 7. As far as security goes, it's fine with me and I like very high security. I have not been attacked in years and that's due to my high security.

    It seems more like he is enjoying experimenting with DE's to me so I would not say Linux is not for him. If he were on Windows he would probably be experimenting with alternate shells, Windows blinds and what not.

    As far as security goes I agree though, the security measures used should be in accordance with the way in which the machine is used.

    I don't use an Antivirus suite on Windows and haven't be attacked either (and yes I am sure there is no hidden malware).

    Sometimes it is useless to use too many security features e.g encrypting with two different programs or something.

    Your system is secure enough if you have Bios enabled Hard disk locking, a decent wallet manager, encryption and a user password. The encryption isn't really necessary unless you are paranoid about content being stolen. Many motherboards come with good HDD security features such that even if the HDD is removed it will not work in another laptop when protected.

    What "attacks" have you experienced and evidence did you have of an actual attack?

    You are using more security than I would see in most Corporate or Government environment. I due to what I do have my machines online 24/7 I have never had an attack. Most of the security scare stuff is misinformed media hype and hype by those with a vested interest.

    And I was not 'telling' you to use Windows I was again giving friendly advice based on observation, you could do well to learn the difference and ease up on the agression.

    Alright. I will take it as friendly advice. Thank you.

    However, I am not going to switch back to Windows 7. It is just not nearly as secure as Ubuntu.

    As for attacks, I have not been attacked in the past three years. So far, so good.

    Ubuntu is not more secure than Windows, the main security issues for any OS is between the chair and the keyboard.

    My cat? Oh man! I knew it. I knew I shouldn't have her on my lap. It's been her all this time. The minute I turn my back, the very minute, she's downloading malware. Okay, that's it.

    The cat -- is banned.

    Cats have a long criminal history, it's the eyes, I tell you, look at the eyes.
