Thunderbird 126.96.36.199 (X11/20061117)
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Must put my cards on the table - I'm a relative newbie and am currently
using Ubuntu Dapper Drake on an Acer laptop.
I dumped Windows XP on the laptop (my home machine) and went to
GNU/Linux as a moral step to the high ground - I was sick of constant
security updates, feeling locked into the Windows upgrade cycle, and
(although not a programmer) am more impressed by the culture of
The only additional packages I have installed beyond the base "off the
disc" installation are Thunderbird (I don't need Evolution's full PIM
functionality), Seahorse key manager, network-manager, Gnomebaker, and
the ugly pack for Gstreamer (I have a lot of .mp3 files left over from
when I was using Window$, sorry...).
How free is my installation? I have been told that Ubuntu installs
non-free drivers without telling me, but how do I find out which ones?
I appreciate this isn't strictly a GNewsense question, but you guys
would be the ones to ask!
Cheers, and thanks in anticipation,
