Mess around to your will

Step 3: Run Windows Apps

    No, An ISO of 8.10.

    You should upgrade, Jaunty is faster and sleeker. Anyway, nice Job!

    I`m changing to XP acusuly...

    I mean actually.

    Why? not to try to force anything on you, but Ubuntu will always run faster and more stable than windows. Also, you can try dualbooting.

    I am dualbooting! (I hope...)

    yay!....UPGRADE....and on that note, why do you want XP (better then vista and 7 though)

    Cus` I loooooooooooooooooooooooooove batch.

    you should lurve virtual box then...

    1. I download it. 2. I play Hide-And-Seek with the file. 3. I click it 1000000000 times. 4. It messes with the groups. 5. It proves worthless.

    Desktop Effects crashing when I try to enable my NVIDA graphics card... Firefox going slower than a turtle... Add & Remove crashing for no reason... Crazy Not Responding errors... Everything crashing just because of my Matrix shell script... So I ask you... Really?

    Not always smoother, and it can take a while to set up drivers. But it is in my experience always faster

    UPDATE: When the New Updates (or whatever) dialog popedup a few days ago, It asked me if I wanted to upgrade to 9.04 and when I clicked Yes it froze.

    This is the best I can do.
