enough time to wait for 2.6.29, test, a fix bugs.

Hi All

Iam new to this kind of discussion thing, only been using Ubuntu for
around 9 months and loving it.  Not really looked back, and only using
Windows for odd things every other month now.

Well my opinion on this was that regarding the time frame didn't 2.6.27
get slipped in at the last minute around Late August/Early September time
for Intrepid and that did not cause any problems.

I have been using the 2.6.29-RC3 Kernel with Januty and found my bootup
time was approx 5 seconds quicker then 2.6.28 Kernel at the time, and
found no issues at the moment.

What other goods reasons are there that we can throw in the pot and put
pressue on the developers to consider using this Kernel.

There is still over 2 1/2 months to got approx before Jaunty is officially
