[SNIP - loads of problems]

I guess this list recieves almost nothing but problem reports.
After all it is a list for help...

I would like to be a little positive and say that apart from mozilla
not being able to run java, and an incorrect modem init string, my
8.1 Pro box has had no critical flaws.
It detected my hardware and has been very stable.

I have bumped in to an amazingly high number of minor problems
compared to 8.0, but no showstoppers.
So, things can get better, and they seem to ba somewhat more difficult
to get running the way I want them to, but I have not have to give up
on anything yet.

All in all I like 8.1, while I still look forward to improvements in

Best regards :o)
