I don't know that's what I got from the article..  The day before he was
stoked with Ubuntu, he hit the update button, X crashed and it took him
30 minutes to recover.  I thought he reported in a more level-headed way
than I would have!  Hells, I was put off Ubuntu for 2 years when an
update undid my multiple-monitor setup; if I'd just come from Windows
and that happened I think I would go running back to the familiar too.
