Re: lenny rant

Well thanks for all the answers - though some were a bit personal: being 
called incompetent and lazy is not what i expected. i guess in general people 
complain about software not being updated quickly enough rather than not being 
old enough. 
one last question - does anyone have a suggestion on how to run two separate 
instances of apache2 under different users and keep upgrading simple?



ps.: apologies for posting in html before - must be a new default in kde4
