Just an unsolicited observation from a long-time Xubuntu user, but one
who (sadly) wishes he had more time to contribute to the success
everyone here has garnered with this excellent distro.

I haven't even downloaded Natty, and you're already talking Oneric the
day after Natty is released?

You guys rock. Keep up the great work.
