I'm still test driving Orca now with the Ubuntu live CD.  Not sure how
I wanna procede for installing yet.  I like the Slackware environment
but I realize that installing gnome will be a biggy (Dropline sounds
fairly easy) but then again Debian interests me too but then I have to
wipe my environment to bring up a new distro so I will have to make up
my mind as to how to go on that one.  In the mean time, the live CD is
giving me some good feelings for Orca so far.  I need to learn a lot
more before I diave in and install the thing completely.

For one thing, I got stuck in the menu bar a few times and couldn't
get out; even ctrl-alt-D wouldn't bring up the desktop.  About the
only thing I could do after that was ctrl-alt-backspace to log me out
and restart; the CD auto logs me back in.  But I used the file manager
and got into some text files with gedit and that felt pretty good.
The editor seemed quite accessible from what I've seen so far.
