Go back to 9.2 then.... and go to 9.3 when they've got all the bugs worked
out of it.

Don't expect a release to be perfect on day one unless you want them to only
release every 18 months or so (to test more like you want them to)

Then you'd be bitching about "how far behind SuSE is with their releases".

You can't have it both ways.
