Right, it is working its way through 484 updates so that is going to take a little while.

I was relieved to find that the network/internet still worked on Windows 8.

By-the-by I did ask this question on the official Ubuntu forum but did not get a reply.

I will report back.

I find the Ubuntu forum helpful, but only if you know how to sift through the rubbish for the gems ;)

Bingo.  Give that man a cigar/

Thank you enormously.

This computer is off to France next Sunday so I want to have it all hunky-dory by then.  There is a small funny with Nautilus but I will start a new topic for that.
