I'm inclined to agree. If 9.2 were anywhere near as problematic as Doug
insinuates, the list would have been inundated with problem reports for
several weeks, now.

I wish I'd found the time to install my 9.2 by now, but currently my
priorities demand that I keep the system running 100% of the time and
concentrate on work, so I'm saving that project for later. That means I
cannot legitimately make a personally substantiated counter-claim to
Doug's dour pronouncements, but as I said above, it's a pretty much a
foregone conclusion that things are as bad as Doug implies.
