Ok, thanks for the info. Next question:
This is my work computer (I'm actually a Unix admin--imagine?) and I need the thing to work, including touchpad configuration, working wifi, vpnc, so on. Nvidia drivers would be nice--I don't need the effects but performance with the nv driver is rather slow.
I do like lightweight desktops like LXDE a lot, but I need something that just_works. What would you suggest--5.9 standard, 5.9 soho, 6.0 rc2?
