Funny, I thought one of the big advantages of Debian over most other
distros is that you *don't* need to reinstall when a new version comes
out. What's the deal with etch, then? Debian's not jumping on the
'reinstall for every upgrade' bandwagon, is it?
(And I ask this from a system which has been through slink, potato,
woody, and is currently on sarge, all without needing a reinstall.)

like "display quality too high"
