@cstanhope Fingers crossed!
My last fresh install of a distro was overtop of a previous one, so they already had all their desktop settings, email and bookmarks etc. in place.
I take a copy of my package list when I do the first install for others. Then a copy of /their/ package list for the next one and so on. Speeds things up tremendously and I don't forget to install something.
BUT it took me several hours to turn off all the garbage and un/install foss stuff in a win10 laptop this afternoon.
