I have found a couple of stability issues but to be honest I was 
expecting that.  Certainly not bad problems anyway.  I'm undecided 
though about what to do about a couple of upcoming Ubuntu installs.  I'm 
not sure if I should stick with 9.04 and then upgrade them to 9.10 when 
it's released or hang fire until the final release of 9.10 is released 
(one install is for my dad so he can try Ubuntu, and the other is for a 
charity who are in need of the PC as soon as possible).
