Installed it in HP Mini 2133.

This time there seem to be no problems in fact the panel has even better looking icons now.

Upgraded as well on my own PC and have nothing to report. :)

I installed it today on the 1.3 GHz Celeron. I did very little testing, but all hell didn't break loose and it looks like it'll be okay. I lost some of the icons for the launchers I had added to the Panel. I restored the icons (actually, found them and put them back).

I'm not real happy that right-clicking on the desktop no longer brings up the Desktop Menu immediately. I have to click on the bottom of the menu in order to get to the Desktop Menu. So I have to do more mouse movement. Not the end of the world, but you win some, you lose some.
