not be as the primary version that is installed by default. The release
candidate and final dates for OOo 3 were originally set to Jul 25th and
Sep 2 respectively, but OOo has slipped a lot from those dates. OOo
3.0rc1 is still not released yet, it is currently expected to be
released on Sept 8 which puts the final release around Oct 20. That
doesn't leave enough time to make it even marginally stable, since that
would be only 3 days before the Intrepid release candidate.

If had been able to keep closer to their originally
stated schedules then this problem wouldn't have occurred.
