Hello Baron,

First, Merry Christmas!

I only use web-based mail services, except at work where I use Outlook on Windows, so I couldn't test Kmail that much. Can you go in Synaptic to check if the spellcheck programs you want are installed?
I will try to test Kmail a little more when I will do my next livecd. (at the next release of TDE)

I have seen that sometimes, it takes a little longer (maybe 10 seconds longer) to log out, but I haven't seen it lock completely with all the desktop as you say. As on any linux system, Ctrl-Alt-Backspace restarts or close the X server and Ctrl-Alt-Del reboots the computer the normal way. I don't know if these are TDE problems or if these are PCLOS problems. Did you had such problems in the past with a TDE system (as the Fedora livecd or your own installation...)?

What puzzle me in that is always this question: What would Mom do if it would happen to her?
The biggest problem I see with linux is when the system don't boot properly because of HDD corruption and it drops you to a shell

Merry Christmas to everyone!
