I made the decision to go back to the latest version of UBUNTU (Feisty). To get the LTS Version to perform as well as Feisty was just going to take too much time. While I can live without my scanner until the UBUNTU support team solves their problem with XSane, I can’t live without my printer and that by itself was too much.
So I made the move back and will just let the rough edge drag for a while. Today I got a little bit of appreciation for what Thomas Edison went through. He was asked how he kept going after having so many failures trying to make the first electric light. He shrugged it off by saying they were not failures because he learned many things that wouldn’t work.
