Well, I'm not try to save just 2-3%; I'm trying to learn how to save
more by starting with something small and easy to understand.
I started out with Gnome when Ubuntu first came out and since I liked it
more than KDE, I have used it since. You're right, if I want to get
serious rather than just puttering around, I should switch.
Just my 0.00000002 million dollars worth,
The map is not the territory,
the dossier is not the person,
the model is not reality,
and the universe is indifferent to your beliefs.
