How do I select something though.  Say I have a 50 page text file that 
I'd like to cat, copy and paste.  I can't do that even with this., 
though this is clearly better than what I do now...  

Thanks
Kev.

In screen:
ctrl-a [esc] then you can page up and down, you can also use the arrow 
keys to go line by line.

I don't use any of the pretty wobbly effects, but I do enjoy working in 
KDE.  KDE is nice and peppy on my laptop, and I would like it to stay 
that way.  For me KDE is more convenient than any other desktop GUI I 
have used.

If you are a screen fan, there is a desktop that was inspired by it.  It 
is called ratpoison.
