I'm not using their Red Carpet service.  I've been getting the rpms from
mirrors and only installing those needed for Evolution.  Its not the
easiest way, but it avoids the ximian desktop stuff (i prefer E).

And what little of Debian I've used, I have liked.  I just got
comfortable with RH back at v4.x and haven't strayed far...  ;-)

Don't worry, they did exactly the same thing with the SO 5.2beta when it
was just a month or two before the final release.  It probably means
that a second beta or a final will be appearing soon.

If you're desperate, I have a copy of the SO 6 beta and can bring it on
CDR to the Ifest on the 9th or the next meeting...
