Re: [PLUG] I'm Convinced To Try Ubuntu

Excellent idea, Jeff!  With all of the recommendations to not 
evaluate performance from live-CD versions, I thought I would have 
to install every distro I wanted to try.  Now that I have processed 
most of what the group has offered, your simple suggestion made 
me realize that I can at least get a first-hand look at the distros to 
determine which I might like to install.

Thanks for the welcome, too.
