Wrong, the logical conclusion is, as I said, that ifyour computer system is
critical to your operation you keep away from bleeding edge, because you
cannot afford to take that sort of risk. with a maybe unstable OS.

No, but it is sufficinet to make me decide on downloading 6.06, which I am
doing now, instead of trying 6.10.
In the same way that when I was using Mandrake, I never went for a x.0
