It were indeed me, Kev.  I like Ubuntu but I just prefer to use KDE. 
Gnome is great and if it was the only available desktop then so be it.
 But of them all, I have tried some of the others but cannot remember
which, I always migrate back to KDE.  Though, saying that, I am
mightily impressed by Evolution.  Does it run under KDE?

Take care.
