  1. Roberto,

    I recently installed your 7.10 client (desktop) release of PC-OS. Haven’t had a chance to try out the extra features but so far looks good. Did have to edit ubiquity to disable the migration assistant in order to install – suggest that migration be made optional during install. Personal preference – I am a long time linux user and have always preferred Gnome and XFCE to KDE. Looking forward to the change to a single shelf desktop – and I prefer mine to be at the bottom of the screen ala Linux Mint XFCE 4.0.. Is thas change available as an update to the 7.10 version, or do I have to download the full 7.10.2 release?

    Also, when running update, it offers to upgrade to ubuntu 8.04 – do I want to do this? It indicates that custom repositories will be disabled during the upgrade but can be reenabled when the upgrade is complete. I don’t believe I have changed any repository settings since installation, .

    I appreciate your efforts in making PC-OS available. Anything the community can (legally) do to make Windows alternatives more attractive to users is good. While I don’t mind tinkering, I support the “it just works” installation for most users. Keep up the good work.
