For newbees, the missing backports or extra repositories, makes Breezy
barely useless - except for upgrade what is already on the start-up CD.
Applications like MidnightCommander+mclight, Xfig, java, kino, k3b+cdrdao,
samba, skype and extra fonts is unreachable unless you go the old way with
./configure, make and make install. That is especially pronounced with AMD
64 !
