Re: An Former Windows User Vet Viewpoint

Thank you for the welcome Jim. I can't wait either but as it is a one-man team, I know it will be a bit in the making. I am fairly new, even though I have been toying with Linux Distros for about 3 years, I have finally let go of Windows and joined the ranks of Linux users world-wide. :D

Re: Like this distro

UPDATE! I am now totally switched over to Point Linux! :D This Distro is much easier for me to customize, with the exception of I can't control the length of my panels for my pseudo-dock, but I just love the smoothness and speed of which this Distro has.
