	Mee TOO!   I moved from Macintosh to Mandrake, and an still a devoted
GUI  user!!   Mandrake allows me to use the GUI 99% of the time. It took
 a while for it to sink in but one can do a lot in KDE.  Learn the
GIU along with the CLI, often a combunation of both can get a job done
very quickly.  There are some things that just fit using the CLI.  When
you finally realize that just typing in xxx -x is all that is needed the
CLI is not that scary.  xxx -x simply calls a program to do your
bidding.  Next to speaking is is that simple.  It is a job to memorize
the names and the -options, but not difficult. 


This e-mail composed using the
Linux Operating System and
the Sylpheed e-mail Program.
I use the Linux distrubution,
 named Mandrake.
