 From my perspective the updates weren't helpful anyway, I'd rather  
not talk and instead deliver.
The latest image, including all optimizations from the optimization  
team are in

We were testing this image a bit, haven't seen the full test report  
yet. More or less it will be the same as Om2008.9, the most noticeable  
improvement will be boot time reduction to about 1 minute.
Now the work in that branch ( is finished, and  
instead we will bring those fixes upstream into,  
benefitting many more users, first thing Mickey's FSO builds.
Two more FSO milestones over the next 4 months, with optimizations of  
course continuing everywhere in that time, then a fork into another  
major release branch.

ACTUALLY - speaking about all this - we are looking for a serious  
distribution maintainer. Someone who can do the exceptionally hard  
work of distribution integration, fixing bugs, small and large, from  
top to bottom of the stack, from UI to kernel, across many packages.  
Someone with a proven Free Software background.
Any applications just email me.

Best Regards,
