Hi Patrick,

You are quite correct, I cannot argue with your point but I kept 
upgrading my laptop, F8 --> F9 --> F10 and I am not impressed with 
either F9 or F10. I am currently waiting to see what F11 will be like. 
When the Linux Magazine DVD with Fedora 11 arrives in my mail box I will 
upgrade my laptop and assess it. Hopefully it will be an improvement on 
it's two predecessors particularly with regard to sound and video.

I use my desktop system to accomplish work on, not to keep upgrading 
every six months for no real improvement in functionality and 
consequently having to re-configure everything on the system each time, 
so, if it ain't broke, (read; keeps doing all that I want) I wont 
upgrade. :-)

Kind regards,

Graeme Nichols.
