is it worth?

Hey guys i was wondering whats the big jump about in RH 9.

I just downloaded 8 and made cd's and of course a week later here comes a whole new version. Dont they usually go in some reasonable order, like 8, 8.1, 8.2????

I was reading the site and it seems to me that this is the only change. " Red Hat Bluecurve graphical interface "... Of course there must be more, right?

I think the main change was the switch to NPTL (Native POSIX Threading Library). Not sure if they did anything else, though. I hear it screws 3D support for a lot of graphics drivers. Hopefully that will be fixed soon.
