        Does it mean you need no any greetings?

    I took the defaults installing 9.1 rc1, and now am having trouble updating, I’d like to install the beta from cd, nuking everything except my home dir (couple large games running under wine). Backup and restore is not likely to be much faster than re-installing from scratch, slower actually, and saving the time is my only interest. Thoughts?

      If backup/restore isn’t the way you’d like to go, you can change any of the defaults within the GUI except for the partition layout. If you’ve installed RC1, Update Manager should prompt you to upgrade to RC2. But again, it depends upon what you want to change.

    Well, hello from Belgium then, Dru 🙂

    I’m eagerly awaiting the release of 9.1. I appreciate it that you take your time to build a quality product, instead of rushing it to the market and overloading users with bug fixes afterwards (better ‘marketing’ what you do; new users that get a buggy product will be out faster than a race horse can run, and experience shows they won’t come back easily. Look at my self as an example: needed a light distribution for an old P4-‘pjuter; took lubuntu, installed it, it was buggy, bam – out of the window it went, and I won’t try it again. PC-BSD 9.0 was too heavy for that box, btw, even ‘though it has 2 GB of ram).

    Anyway, when 9.1 is out a new donation will be coming your way. I also offered to help out a little by translating 6 months ago, but never got a reply from Ixsystems, so I guess it is not needed.

    Well, thanks for all you guys and girls do, and be well to you al,

    The video is great and the installer, too. 🙂 Great work! I can’t wait until it’s stable.
