So I placed the Ubuntu sticker on the outside of my laptop, just below the Creative Commonists sticker. I have been impressed with all I have been able to do without having windows on my machine. I solved the problem with the mp3's, I had downloaded the wrong easy ubuntu program. Once I installed the right one, everything is good.
I'm continuing my experiments with looking at the KDE flavour of Ubuntu. It's quite good and I can go from one to the other without any problems.
So Bill G isn't impressed. All I can say is Linus Torvalds is The Man.
