Hey Edward,

I'm very new to the entire world of Ubuntu/Linux and J-Pilot, but I find
myself saying "*it just works*" a lot!

Admittedly, the text-oriented nature of Ubuntu (getting my head around the
terminal) is going to be a challenge. However, I never got my head around
the Windows Registry either :-)
