Dear Brian,

Am I supposed to do something with these updates?

Anyway, just to inform you, I already got Ubuntu up and running. Initially I
only got the classic interface but after installation of Nvidia drivers, I
got Unity. One question though, why don't I have the option to switch
between classic or unity at startup?

Thanks for the updates and hopefully for the reply!

Regards,

Mark
