Thanks for the reply. Ive installed gnome, having some problems running
it and didnt get a chance to tackle it last night, but I will later. I
guess I was just wondering whether the guys at ubuntu have just done a
really nice job with gnome, or is this how it "looks". The fonts seemed
smoother and window dragging wasnt jerky at all, even though it was
running from a cd. But I will compare and see what its like.
