I need Win and X windows both. Some things are not easily portable.
Even when running CrossOver. Which is an incredible piece of work for
Office and lots of other stuff, the old antenna programs don't work
well, if at all. As well as the new ones.

Disclaimer - I have not tried ELNEC yet.

On to an OS low key rant.

I have machines from OS9, a unix style OS for microcomputers (the real
one from Motorola for 68xx and 68xxx CPUs, not Apple) through Win98,
2000, XP Home/Pro, and some versions of Win7.

And some flavors of linux that most people don't play with because they
require knowledge of the underbelly.

I have Linux on an old machine (P3, 1 GHz, 256M RAM) that really doesn't do
it justice. I was impressed that it recognized almost every USB device I
plugged in, new or old. I really should get a newer machine and load it up
with Ubuntu.

As someone who is a linux bigot (within the linux world, not talking
about other OSs) I finally had to admit that Ubuntu was ok.

But the current release is not.

I would advise you stick to the 10.04LTS (long term support) release.
Ubuntu 11.xx threw out the GNOME desktop and replaced it with rubbish.
I know no one that likes the new desktop that has used the old.

We can only hope that by the time 10.04 is deprecated that GNOME will be
back.

I have 10.04. Having only half the recommended RAM (per stated system
requirements) means I'm flogging the hard drive.

The current version allows you to easily revert to the old desktop if
you want. I did. But IMO there is not that much overall OS improvement
to do the upgrade unless you just want to try it which is why I did.

In Windows I use Firefox with the QuickJava extension. It puts on/off
buttons at the bottom of the browser window that make turning on and
off browser functions (flash, java, javascript, ect) quick and easy.
When exploring I only leave text and images active. If I find a site I
want to chance that needs flash or script I just turn it on and
refresh. It's not foolproof of course but a different approach. And if
I'm just reading text sites (newspaper, forums ect) I leave everything
off but text and images and most of the flashy moving annoying ads
which I hate are disabled which also improves the page loading time a
bunch.

11.04 did. 11.10 does not. I'm sticking with 10.04 LTS. The new desktop
is for morons. They are obviously trying to appeal to tablet-brains.

Ah, I didn't realize 11.10 was out. My 11.04 is busted in that it
won't update so perhaps I'll take your advice and go with 10.04. Yes I
really tried hard to like that new desktop but just couldn't hack it
(pun intended) in the end...

Nice. But that has nothing to do with what I was talking about.
Windows is, well, Windows. And X windows is Unix.

Neither have anything to do with browsing per se.
