Well of course but I think what he pointed is the misleading 2008.8
release and mail announcement. It looked like it was at least a bit
"stable". (Not perfect of course)
But in fact it was not really more "mature" than previous ASU available.

Looked like "ASU was aplha dev, tadaaa here is the final beta 2008.8,
finally a real releasable distro"
But actually I did not find it really more usable than previous ASU
(evolutions of course, but not really usable...)

Those waiting this release to switch to ASU (not totally mature enough
for their use) were disappointed because it did not bring enough
stability to justify the switch. And the announcement did not really
show that.
