Unfortunately, what amazes me is that interspersed with all the
various "Lucid is stable, see it works fine right here" posts he makes
are "Hey, X isnt' working today, or update Y no longer succeeds" type

So which is it... everything works, or it's broken? ;-)

Alpha/Beta testing is fun... it's what I do for a living...

And Pedro, I've got four words for ya, "Red Hat GCC 2.96" ;-)  Ahhh
good times...
