there might almost be less downloading if you can get a more recent cd?

I've been ok so far..

I've not _yet_ had any problems tracking hoary, apart from one where 
every so often when gnome loads (after booting up) the panel fails to 
add it's buttons / launchers etc (it seems as if gnome hangs while 
loading?)... at which point a ps aux | grep $USER | awk '{print $2}' | 
xargs kill seems to help fix it (i.e kill all processes and try logging 
in again).

Not sure if this is a gnome problem, a hoary problem, or my own.. 
although we do have it occuring on two different machines (ppc laptop 
and my desktop), all running hoary.
