[aprssig] OT: Windows XP Service Pack 3

Ubuntu is based on Debian and I've not noticed any problems with 
numerous Debian 4.0 installations. I have encountered various problems 
with (K)Ubuntu.

I'd recommend installing Debian from an iso image (for KDE desktop) or 
iso/netinstall for Gnome. The Debian installation is not much different 
from (K)Ubuntu.
