Thanks Joe. I may have to try Fedora then. Does skype run well on it? Also
with Video?

And what about disabling PulseAudio.... this package seems to cause quite
some trouble, ive seen it being duscussed on the Ubuntu forum as well. Some
recommending to remove it, others disagreeing.

Regards, mikk
