I only run 8.10 on a single test machine (out of 7 current systems - 6
run 8.04.01). To me 8.10 has been way too much effort to try and
maintain... and my 'hobby' is working with Ubuntu. I find myself 'trying
to fix things' way too much to be even semi-productive with 8.10. Sorry
to say that, given that my 'hobby' is Ubuntu; I've always managed to do
pretty well with previous versions (feisty & gutsy) but I've removed
Intrepid from all production systems.
