OK, I am trying to establish if it is just me. But can't see how. I have
downloaded the SOAS4 iso and installed and everything else is working. I
have booted (the SOAS) on several PC laptops and it's the same. I am
wondering why others don't also see this happening.

I looked for the erase option when right clicking on it, as one would do
with activities on the XO-1 in previous times. So now we just use Terminal?
OK by me. Will this allow me to erase eToys completely and then reinstall an
earlier version, to investigate my first problem as above?
