Hi, Alexandre!

Thank you very much for your swift and charitable response.

And here is the grovelling.  I was trying to test whether a scanner problem 
was hardware or software.  I have very few remotely recent Live CDs already 
burnt.  Your first one was one of them, Alexandre.  I tried it immediately 
after Ubuntu.  I have to acknowledge that hordes of people love Ubuntu.  But 
I am not one of them.  11.04 Ubuntu + Unity is sooooo sloooowwwwww.  It 
nearly drove me scatty.  On a reasonably fast new box it crawled even after 
it started.  And booting up is a lesson in slowing down for snails.

PCLOS + Trinity _ran_ by comparison.  It fairly whizzed along.  And I liked 
the appearance more than last time.  I have to say that almost anything would 
have looked good after Unity, but I don't know why I disliked it so strongly 
before. :-(

So kudos Alexandre.  What you have done is indeed very useful.  Thank you.

I still strongly dislike the menu style you have used, but I know that that is 
partly because of my disability - and I cannot and don't expect the world to 
redesign itself to suit me.  I just panicked at the thought of TDE perhaps 
going the way of everything else and leaving me without a usable DE. :-( 

I look forward to your next Live CD.  (And David - I didn't use yours because 
I only had one from ages ago.  I have now downloaded the one from April this 
year and will burn it.)

Xsane is, of course, there all the time.  I must have been panicking.
