AdamW: I think it will end up meeting the September 20th date. I've been using 9.2 RC2 and it is nice and ready for full release in my opinion. I was really worried after trying out 9.2 RC1 because performance was highly jerky. Under RC2, my computer has never been snappier. What do you know, an OS that actually gets faster and uses less resources with each new version. Someone needs to explain how to do that to Microsoft.

(I say this because there's no way you could run any recent MS OS on this box, a PII 300mhz, but yet I can use all the latest Linux distros. Yeah, yeah.. I know, I'm poor.)
