Another wasted CD on an O/S that seems to be difficult on purpose and has me running into the warming bosom of XP!!

Any thoughts on this one?

Well, it's supposed to just work.

I'm sure you've read my earlier post, hours for an upgrade, give me a break.

It doesn't matter if you like Microsoft or not. Windows 7 just works and Ubuntu 9.10 doesn't. I run Ubuntu most of the time, Windows 7 when I have to. At the moment MS are winning.
