    Of course you will have problems, that's part of the fun. But seriously, that's what this forum is here for, to have problems, er I mean, to have fun. Welcome to the forums. Ask all you want, but please try to post in the correct forum for each question.

    You won't even get the chance to install KDE 3.5 with a current openSUSE release.

    Cue here for all the 3.5 diehards to jump in and complain how bad KDE4 is.

    Ok, tell you what, download either the GNOME or the KDE LiveCD, burn a CD and play around with it to see how you like it on your computer. Also read the stickies at the top of the forum first. I assume you are familiar with CD burning tips since you have installed Ubuntu.

    If you have problems, post in the Boot/Install forum. Have fun!

    I did not burn a LiveCD ISO image. I created a LiveUSB. That is convenient, since a carry USB flash drives around anyway, so I'll be able to show my friends running only Windows what Linux is like and maybe convert a few.

    No no, silly boy, if they run Linux they will come to you with their support problems. By running Linux you can plead ignorance of all kinds of Windows ills.

    Seriously, I suppose it depends on how keen they are. It's best if they are convinced themselves first.

    I already have to deal with Windows users who got viruses due to lack of antivirus/firewall and lack of doing Windows updates.

    The Windows users who are my friends will bother me anyway, since I am A+ certified, so I'm their "go to geek". If anything, they will bother me less if they switch to Linux and stop getting malware.
