	I need to write this because people keep coming up with 
reasons why Lucid 10.04 is not yet stable. This is not true.

	I loaded Lucid 64bit Alfa version as a LiveCD into it's own 
partition. Just what was on the cd-rom and what I got from 
about 100 updates over a week or so. At first it was good but 
had faults. The updates and some actual data asking me to 
apt-get install a few things has made it perfect. It is as 
good as I expect to see the final Lucid after April 2010.

	Those who tell me that Lucid is unstable, I suggest your 
wrong. Your not using Lucid and I am. It is working fine. I 
discovered I could not install k3b but that was because it was 
not all in the Lucid repository. A day later someone put it 
there and I have k3b.

	There are at least a few updates every day. I think this is 
normal for an Alfa version at this time. If knowing what I do 
now, that an Alfa version of some new Ubuntu is available I 
will d/l that. It works.
