Re:Get 6.10 right first!

THINK about what "Edgy" means.

Edgy => Bleeding Edge => Not entirely polished or stable.

Ubuntu website AND Shuttleworth's blog, expressly said it was a bleeding edge version, why do you think the support period is far shorter than Dapper?

The point of Edgy is to try new ideas and such, to act as a platform demonstrator.

If you use 6.10 (Edgy) as production, there's nothing to say besides: you're an idiot. If you're my Admin, I would fire you on the spot for your stupidity.

Next time, READ the announcements and what the new releases are really aimed for! You claim you've use Linux a long time, but I don't get why you didn't read about Edgy before diving in.

I expected experienced Linux users to READ before they leap!
