Thanks for the thoughts Steve.

I guess, part of the problem for me is, I use RISC OS as a serious machine
for both business and pleasure/fun, so I've taken time to get to grips
with its bits n bobs.

Linux/Ubuntu OTOH is just a toy to play with, so through times constraints
and the fact that it is only a play thing, I've not delved into its depths.

Maybe when I get around to retiring I'll have the time to play more... But
then my dear wife who is retired, says she has less time spare now than
she did when she was working.  ;-)
