Maybe worth a try then.. You have me thinking... Ubunto? Kubuntu? what's
the difference?

I could one day load Linux on my gaming box. More power under that hood
than I know what to do with. But in this world there are somethings that
must still be Windows :(. I just don't want to be restricted to 'ported'
games that just about work. Keep the Internet off that box though too
many M$ virus issues..
