If Xubuntu does not have long term support, please explain this excerpt 
from the website:


<>Version 7.10, codename /Gutsy Gibbon/, 
is the latest stable release. It will receive security updates until 
April 2009.


<>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"
