      Holy crap - Sleep mode finally works on on this laptop! Not even windows got it to play nice. Also passed my ECDL course, which is good.

      I've gotten a few replies, but my last interview was a complete washout. "Media/sales consultant" turned out to be "travelling salesman" bs.

      Well Adz, it's finally done: I did a fresh install of Kubuntu and yes, I admit, I was a bloody idiot for not doing it sooner...

      After all the bad press and restrictions G+ came with, I never bothered with it, didn't see much point.

      @adz Worked through most of the teething troubles. Seems the 3d performance issue only applies to compositing, not games.

      Broken: sleep mode (haven't found a linux yet where it works), 3d compositing (which I don't use day to day).. many day 1 niggles.
