It would also help to make sure that the software is kept up to date (i.e. Firefox and Thunderbird, for example).

Just for your information again - the Latest version of Firefox is 34.0.5, while the latest version of Firefox in the repos is 28.0.

I just dont see how Linux of any kind is a replacement to windows

That's what we call a "vision problem".  Wink

I echo your post. 

I've used various VL releases and found them satisfactory, however, I switched to Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and discovered this Ubuntu release meets my specific needs. 

When anyone suggest Linux cannot compete with windows that someone simply does not fit the Linux user profile.  To meet the Linux user profile one must be able to do more than click the mouse  Grin

Reinstalled using gui installer advanced -with all 3 partitions checked.  Even made sure sda1 was reiserfs - good!
Still will not accept logins for either user or root!
Any suggestions on how to get this working?

Just to let you know that Thunderbird is now up to version 31.3.0, but unfortunately I don't see it in the repositories as of yet Sad.

Thanks Robert.
blkid came up in VL7.0 LIVE with a different value which I used.  Tried both /dev/sda2 and the UUID for the swap line in fstab - still wouldn't accept either user or root passwords!
Will try reinstalling AND adding swap.
