    I’ll burn GoblinX to a CD and give it a spin. I doubt it would pull me away from Ubuntu, but it’s nice to be familiar with what’s out there.

    I doubt it too! :) but this version does feel a lot smoother and more polished than some of the previous 2.xx series versions i tried. Thanks for participating today.
