Long Awaited

I've been running -current for the last two months updating the system as the fixes come out and I'm impressed with the work that has gone into this release. One big change I noticed was X. I'd boot over to 12.2 and can see the big difference in the graphics rendering. Icons are much smoother than with X that came with 12.2.

It's too bad today isn't Friday the 13th, that would have completed my world dominance. ;)

Well the -current tree generally remains pretty stable, as Pat doesn't introduce new stuff (e.g. KDE4) until it runs true.

Off-topic, when I login to this site, "Login successful" is pretty damn confusing when I type in the wrong username or password.
