Yes--I do know all of the above--Have been with Ubuntu from Warty & have
run the Garnome project many times several years ago--I am currently
using Karmic & was looking thru Synaptic--hence my question.

I have been testing software for over 10 years now---So I not afraid to
run unstable or testing apps....I was meerly curious---I see more 2.26
gnome that I do 2.27..........
