I've been reading all I can about 9.1. I've got a hacked 8.2 system that I'd like to restore back to originality (some downloaded packages don't compile or rpm nicely anymore) or move to 9.1 and start fresh. My hardware is fairly new and 8.2 gave little or no trouble (I tend to forget bad experiences). My wife's hardware is similar but a bit newer. I put 9.0 on it and only the sound gave some trouble (volume control can only be achieved via PCM instead of Master). Anyway, my impression from reading all the comments is that I should avoid 9.1. My typical daily usage is gcc/gdb/nedit/vi, javac/java, mozilla, telnet/ftp (to my local machines running other OSses) OpenOffice, GIMP, mplayer/realplayer and others in a GNOME environment. Should embrace or avoid 9.1 ?
