Just hang in there for another 5 days - 10.10 will be released next Sunday.

Or you can install RC1 right now. I have. Damn good. No hiccups. (But I 
always do a clean install...)

Even plays every DVD I throw at it - "right out of the box"! No more of 
that installing additional stuff - just simply answer YES to the 
question if you want 3rd party apps to be installed during the installation.

Boots fast. Shuts down fast.

Ubuntu gets better and better at every release.

(Only slight question remaining is what NoOp mentioned last week that he 
had trouble with no wifi with the pre-RC1, but he did provide a 
solution; as I have no need for wifi I didn't follow-up on what he wrote.)

Maverick 10.10 - go for it!
