A bit like Open Office then?

I'd rather have a botched version than nothing at all, FC5 is due out soon and 
that will be botched, broken and slow in some areas, thats the way of all 
computer software especially in the Linux community we accept it otherwise we 
may as well all pack up and use MS.

Linux is just as prone to crashing as anything else code is code is code the 
difference is good or bad code. I had three separate crashes last week two on 
my Fedora and one on SuSE so I think the crashing argument needs to slink off 
and hide in the cupboard where it should have stayed its not a valid 

Anyway just like governments if you want a new one you need to vote if you 
don't then its no good moaning at what you do or don't have, change is 
brought about by action not by sitting down and;
"bitching in the chicken run".
