I now am happy with my 12.04 mostly xubuntu system, I just wanted a way to mount Skydrive.. Turns out it is easy with the SME packeage. Very easy to install, let you link to 3 storage providers (including Skydrive!!) plus they give you 5gigs from their own service... not too bad..
Just go to smestorage.com and get the package for you.. If you have problems installing sudo apt-get -f install should fix you right up.
