I sent this to just Todd on accident.. so I'll paraphrase what I said since my reply was from my phone.

Basically I'm not going to install anything other than Ubuntu because thats what she's used to.  Its going slow because this week I've had alot going on with my son (school activities) and he lives in Austin.  I will install 8.04 tonight.
