I haven't kept up with the day-to-day messages on the mailing lists I'm 
subscribed to and must have missed complaints about 9.2.  I would give 
9.0 a "pretty good" rating.  It has crashed on me a handful of times in 
the eighteen months or so I've had it installed.  I think SuSE still has 
to discontinue the 8.x support before they get to 9.0 so I should be OK 
for a while.  I hope so since I don't feel like going through an install 
anytime soon.

Any tips/pointers on how to fix Mozilla Mail spellcheck?
