Despite the rush, it seems to be flowing at a steady 2mibps, but a word
of warning here:


It might not be a quick upgrade... I don't think this estimation
includes the package configuration time, upgrading things like
postgres/mysql databases can take a while, installing new kernels will
also take a while... most of these things bottleneck at the HDD, dpkg
doesn't thread that I'm aware of... That's probably a good thing...

The bread crumbs to 3rd floor is screaming like Bryan Bird because of a
mistake. Sun Microsystems is gasing up the marketing hype machine.
