OK, it figures... nothing happens until I
bitch and moan, and then ten minutes later I
get the phonecall "Your software just arrived."

Now, if only the senders would learn to mark
the package as "Printed Matter", I would not
have been dinged another $26.35 in taxes when
FedEx brought it across the border.

I can hardly wait to take it home and take it
for a spin. (It better be worth it... grumble,
grumble... $79.95 US + $27.95 US s&h + $26.35 CDN...
yow! That hurts!).

So, if I correctly understand recent posts, I should
do a clean install, rather than just updating from my
current, messy 7.3 Pro with Ximian GNOME, since I don't
have much stuff that I (think I) need to save.
I want to get back to KDE anyway. GNOME is nice,
but KDE has a certain attraction... maybe it's the
accent.... :-)

Other than e-mail files, and (obviously, documents
that I've created and a couple of little projects,
is there anything I should bother backing up?
