What are you using the computer for?

Most of my PCs are for work I do.

That's what the "LTS" in 6.06 is about.

I anticipate keeping that for the full 3 year life

On the other hand on my ibook, however 606 doesn't
work as well as 5.04 did 

Still have no useable sleep .
5.04 had a kludge to make this work partially
5.10 the kludge didin't work
6.06 sleep worked but reset the clock to 1982

so I'm hoping 6.10 does better :-)

if your computer is for work I'd say don't fix what
isn't broke.

Bleeding edge is nice sometimes I stay ther with
Scribus...but often it may be better to just use the
APP that you want bleeding edge and leave the OS at a
stable version
