Bah.  Stupid superstitious numerology, done with a really crappy
calender which Europe has imposed on the rest of us and sexagesimal time
inherited from ancient Mesopotamia.  Using some round number in the UNIX
era would at least be geeky.

Why not just release it when it is ready (and not a moment sooner)?  It
looks as if the /etc/issue perl fetches for my sig. already says 10.10.

godbless --everyone --no-exceptions
Linux 2.6.35-22-generic Ubuntu 10.10, Gnome 2.32.0
