    Hmmmm.... Should I? I'm so happy with rc2. Maybe I'll do it anyways. ;D

    It's still a development release, so I guess I'll be just as good with rc2.

    Wicked. When I have some free time, I may try to upgrade. I wonder how much stuff will have to be reconfigured.

    I upgraded the cvsup way. So far it doesn't seem all that different. The kernel is the biggest difference, and I haven't gotten a chance to browse through all the kernel options. The upgrade took a little work, but it wasn't as hard as I expected, mainly time consuming. So far I've found no bugs in it. Everything is basically how it was beforehand.
