If Xubuntu does not have long term support, please explain this excerpt
from the xubuntu.org website:
<http://www.xubuntu.org/get#gutsy>Version 7.10, codename /Gutsy Gibbon/,
is the latest stable release. It will receive security updates until
<http://www.xubuntu.org/get#dapper>Version 6.06, codename /Dapper
Drake/, is the latest stable release with /Long Term Support/. It will
receive security updates until June 2009.

I do care about using apps that actually work
I dont agree with some of the app choices for 7.10 but that is remedied
on a per app basis after install
My problem is the way you waltz back to the project, make changes, and
say "Oh, by the way, I wiped out all traces of your work for the past 3
months. If you want them back in, prove they are worth it"
