    Regarding the "too old kernel, too old Xorg". Lenny & a half is already announced and should be here sooner than etch & a half was.

      The kernel is easy to upgrade, Xorg is more compilcated, installing binary drivers is the preferred way. Of course this would not help much for new hardware which only runs on oss drivers.

            They release a new installer with a new kernel close to half-way through the release cycle which facilitates Stable branch installs on new hardware not supported by the Lenny kernel.
