FYI - Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 released

Well, there is a difference between stable and old-stable. Gnome uses
the odd/even version numbering system the same as the Linux kernel did
back before 2.6. Gnome 2.16 is stable. Gnome 2.17 is unstable. Gnome
2.18 is if not stable pretty close to it. Debian Etch is shipping with
2.14, which would be equivalent to me using Debian Woody as my primary
OS. And even Debian Unstable isn't packaging Gnome 2.18 yet, someone
please correct me if I'm wrong about this, but when I switched from
Debian to Ubuntu Gnome 2.16 wasn't even in unstable yet and Ubuntu had
it in Edgy, which had already been released for a month. I understand
that Debian Stable is supposed to be stable, but 2 major stable versions
back is going a little beyond stable, especially from an accessibility

Live long and prosper,
I've always found anomalies to be very relaxing. It's a curse.
