  1. Awesome.
    But i noticed that nobody has made a bin image yet, and i’m not geeky enough to understand how to make my own.
    (read: I can follow a guide and do whatever they do but as long as I don’t understand what I’m doing, it is not going to work for me..)

    If someone builds an image, please let us know! =D
    (I’m in Europe, don’t know if that’s going to make a difference..)

    Do you remember the old saying that you should never use version 1.0 of anything? Now we’re supposed to wait for 1.3!

  3. “…and that the images have been released following a release cycle, rather than waiting for everything to mature first.”

    As Ubuntu and GNOME has proved, this actually makes better quality software than the “release when ready”-type releases. Especially since only deadlines gets anything close to ready.

    (That, and anything Knuth made, but he’s the exception to the rule)
