Eh? KDE is nothing like Windows 3.11, not even remotely. I'm assuming by 'completely new design' you mean the Unity interface used by Ubuntu? Or Gnome 3 (which seems to be drawing much hate).

This was one of the things I REALLY felt lacking about DOS's CLI compared to the Beeb when I moved from a 128K BBC Master to a 286 PC back in 1991 - the ability to copy any character on the screen was just so intuitive - DOS felt clunky by comparison (it still does!). I still have the Beeb in the loft while the 286 was long since consigned to the PC graveyard in the sky...
It's a uk model, so admittedly may be using different terminology, the LP mode gets me 6 hours on a 3 hour tape or 8 hours on a 4 hour tape - bit academic as I barely use it!
my 10 year old JVC VHS player quite happily records and plays back in long play.....
Not always true, I bought a Dell Mini 9 with Ubuntu from Dell in the UK a few months ago and it was Â£40 CHEAPER than the Windows version - plus I could spec it with 2GB memory which Microsofts licensing prevents Dell from doing with the Windows version (If I recall correctly).
