Actually, the .2 releases have proven to be the best. Skip .0 and.1
if you will, but always snap up .2.

I always look at the list volumes around release time. It usually is very high with X.0, less with X.1, etc. So I generally agree. I think this time the 9.1 seemed more problemetic than 9.0, probably due to the Novel buyout.

This is usually not the case though, and have been burned, and had more hours burned with X.0 releases of big software like Oracle and various UNIX operating systems.
