Well, up to now the usplash is still with me.
Also I suspect that the newer network-manager is not being utilized, 
still using the older program. (not older version, totally new program 
for karmic).

But, no, I am not at all unpleased. I think my current system is very 
very functional and far far better than the previous jaunty and newer 
alpha's have been an improvement over the older alpha's. The usplash and 
network manager are not show stoppers at all, (unless the new network 
mangager makes the internet speed whizz by in a flash, heh heh). I am 
glad I opted for the karmic alpha's, really.

But thanks for your comments.

Take care.
