But like you ended using KDE apps to get things done.
Clementine - for music collection
K3B - for burning CD's & DVD movies
Dolphin File Manager - More mature and feature rich than Nemo
DigiKam - Image stuff

turning off resume last state, will speed up the boot
I've had no luck finding ram that works for the PC's bigger than 256mb, [ there are 4 slots]

digikam is more user friendly than gimp[ gwenview, doesn't do minor corrections]

much of my time is spent working around my ranch at this time of year, but I'll try to get a dualboot[separate hdd] goining in the next couple weeks
I don't have
