  I would have to agree that this .0 release is pretty good, as a matter of fact it is the only upgrade that's ever worked for me.  Usually things break left and right when I perform an upgrade, but nothing broke, the installation didn't hang, no nothing. Which is good since I really didn't want to go back and set up the raid partitions all over again.  I don't like the fact that Gnucash won't run but what can you do.  
  One thing I found interesting, and I don't know if this worked on any other release, is the drag and drop features.  By accident I happened to drop the cdrom icon from the desktop into Netscape, low and behold it brought up the contents of said cdrom.  So much for the other file managers.....
