may I take this opportunity to re-iterate the warning that Dapper is NOT for 
"production" use yet... there can be "breakage"... especially in the next few 
weeks when the new version of Gnome is introduced. 

Current release date for Gnome 2.14 is 15th March... approx a very short 
period before Ubuntu 6.04 officialy hits the streets.

By all means try the new dapper test versions, but please play with it on a 
non-production test machine... if you use your main work machine to play and 
it breaks, then don't come in here with your sob stories... remember, you 
have been warned :)

OK, have fun... I certainly intend to, but I've got the luxury of a couple of 
spare machines to play on while this machine remains in nice "breezy" 
condition... :)
