Didn't really mean to install Dapper, but now I have it. Should I keep it?

I have been using it for ages, I've had a few little blips, but no
dataloss other than unsaved data+crash. It is now pretty stable, IMHO.
If you *do* find any problems, please mosey on down to launchpad.net and
report a bug. Dapper *needs* testers, so it would be great if you could
keep on using it.
