EXPERIMENTAL means "If you don't know the possible consequences of using EXPERIMENTAL software, don't use EXPERIMENTAL software".

This weeks pet peeve:
Using "voltage" instead of "potential", which leads to inventing new words like "amperage" instead of "current" (I, measured in A) or possible "charge" (amperehours, Ah or Coulomb, C). Sometimes I don't even know what people mean.

@ amije

What do you mean?
It's still on this ISO. Same version as before.

I'd rather this be a proper install CD, not just a net-install.. There is an older kernel with GART for the sam flex, which is good for me, but not for those with just a sam440ep.

Over here in Australia we don't have unlimited downloads.

well, did you know, that you can download everthing before starting to install via net-install. ACube Homepage links to a server where can download more CD Images, so that you only have to swap CD during installprocess...

cheers... greetings to downunder
