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.

You can use '/dev/sda2' or find the UUID with 'blkid /dev/sda2'.

UUID=74dd31bc-3c77-41b0-adf4-0c24e0ba1acb   swap   swap  sw 0 0

Text install of 7.1 RC3 hung near/at the end of installing packages.
Tried again with gui install - completed and successfully rebooted.  (It had installed LILO.
Would not accept user password or root password.  I tried the latter with blank - no help.
Browsing with 7.0 Live, the user is in sdb6.  Looking at /etc/fstab,

#fstab generated by vinstall
UUID=a1262683-2511-4ee4-856b-29922bea241e   /   ext3   defaults  0 0
UUID=90ea6954-5d6a-4e58-b4b9-90325a005c6c   /home  reiserfs  defaults 0 0
...
('/' should have remained reiserfs!)  Realized that I hadn't set swap (/sda2).  How do I find that UUID?  Can I use '/dev/sda2' as on previous versions?  Or do I reinstall?

As I said earlier, text install reformatted and wrote to sda1 '/' (sdb6 '/home' was not reformatted.)
Went in this morning with VL6 and found subprocess.log

goupadd:  'Bruce' is not a valid group name
Will use gparted to reformat /sdb6 and try to install again.
