The ballast went out on a kitchen fluorescent light, 4-48" tubes. I'm thinking of replacing it with track lighting, but I'm not sure if they would produce enough light. The kitchen is about 9'x16', this light is over the sink, a ceiling fan & light are over the table at the other end.
Looking at track lighting in a store, it doesn't seem like they produce a lot of light. It's more directed than ambient light from the fluorescent light.
