Sample text

Despite these positive characteristics, however, Linux is, on its own, just a text-based system. There is no pretty desktop, and there are no windows or charming little icons to make you feel safe and comfy once you are behind the keyboard.

I guess you could think of it as DOS on steroids, though a Linux purist will surely cringe at the thought.

In that window, click Drawer once to highlight it, and then click the Add button. Close the window by, quite logically, clicking Close.
