I'll say it was odd..

Imagine the look on my face when dpkg lost /usr/bin/python during the dist-upgrade and things screeched to a halt. Or when Lilo booted the wrong partition. Or when I finally got things running to find out madwifi was broken and the Google-Goose-Chase cure was ath5k + hostapd. I don't recall an upgrade ever going so badly, and I've been upgrading since Rex. I've written a HOWTO and made code contributions, but I'm not up to chasing Testing anymore, sorry.

I appreciate your words about KDE though.That one truly isn't ready and can't be fixed by mortals.. 'Orrible, just 'orrible.
