The date says 2012-08-28! Has it been out that long?

Patrick watches the code - not the calendar!

But for the first time I will install on release day... thanks PV and all!

There's alwaysa bit of time between the final stamp of approval, getting the ISOs done, burning them to disk, verifying that they work, and then send the disks off to the replicator.
Only after that, a public announcement can be made.

LOL!! I feel elated and depressed at the same time. It's like the emotional letdown after a big game. Maybe we need a post-game tailgate party!

Anyway you look at it 14 rocks!!
