As a member of the 'Must do a backup tomorrow society' :) it is something I’ll have to have a look at.

TBH all my CD/DVD burning is done with k3b as this just seams to be the most reliable.

I was thinking more of the installation but now we have an alternate installer this is really a problem.

OK.  Not a great problem for people to install if needed and I suppose there is probably some thing for Chromium that does this anyway.

People I’ve shown Lubuntu to with WBar running wrere rather impressed and I thought it might just provide something different from the crowd.  I use it in conjunction with the panel, which I move to the top.

NumLockX installed by default would be very useful. to me any way.  I know there’s a problem with it at the moment but, hopefully it will be solved.

I suppose the thing to do, really, is to try and get rid of some of the annoying bugs in the config area, like the LXRandR one mentioned earlier.

Have fun in the USA :D
