    Heres the situation, A buddy of mine told me I should install this kubuntu on my system, So I did. Well I have no clue on how it works or anything I asked him to kinda walk me through on how to install some windows programs I have, Like the Magic Jack phone thing.

    Well needless to say, he bailed on me and I havent heard from him in several days and I have been sitting without a phone since last Friday.

    So basically, I want to remove this kubuntu and put windows 7 back on my system so I can get all my window programs back.

    Is there any tutorial around that will show me how to do this?

    Thanks in advance.

    Ubuntu rocks (never tried Kubuntu but i'm sure its very similar). You should keep it as it is much more powerful and secure than any version of Windows. However, if you really need to run some windows apps you could try installing VirtualBox
    Code:
    virtualbox.org
    This would allow you to seamlessly run a virtual windows machine within your Linux environment.

    Im gonna try to do that virtualbox and see what happens. I need to put windows 7 on it also for the wifes crap, but my goal is to get the phone working again.

    :EDIT: well I got the Virtualbox install but have no clue what to do now. I am trying to read some other forums stuff, but this is all japanese to me. Anyone have a few minutes on MSN or YIM, I would appreciate any help you can give.

    I got it all figured out with the help of MrBlue, He hit me up on MSN and pretty much walked me through.

    Very much appreciated that.

    Kubuntu is the same think as ubuntu but uses kde instead of gnome. And yes, in my opinion much better than windows.
