It appears that while I've been looking the other way, autopackage has matured wonderfully. Installing firefox 2 was amazingly quick and painless (it goes without saying that firefox 2 rocks). I will stick my neck out and say that if anything can save the steaming pile of shit that is linux on the desktop, it's autopackage.

Bittorent says my FC6 download has 3 days left. Great. Somehow I don't have great hopes for this release.

Ubuntu's a little better. There were one or two thorns the last time I tried it -- suspend didn't work reliably, for instance. I'm definitely switching to it at some point. Most of my problems with linux though are completely distro independent.

3 days? This is why I've put off upgrading...
