I am using Edgy (Beta) on this iMac ... and am generally very impressed!!  
There's plenty of daily downloads of 'fixes' as you might expect ... but 
everything seems to be working on my desktop.

This old iMac is a bit slow so I dropped OpenOffice off the desktop ... 
replacing it with the slightly faster (and smaller)  KOffice suite.  Ever 
since then my Adept updater has been trying to re-install the OpenOffice.  I 
get around this problem by using 'apt-get update' in a terminal ...    Has 
anyone else noticed this behaviour??

I managed to get a softphone downloaded and installed  ... 'Twinkle'.  
Definitely worth a try if you have broadband!  For me KPhone produced 
unacceptable noise (?feedback?) although it did work  i.e. it would dial out.  
Maybe I needed to use a handset ... but this iMac has builtin mixc and 

Can't wait for the release version...
