can someone please confirm for me if back ports are good or bad. on the irc ubuntu channel they swear backports are bad and ive seen posts all over some say good others say bad. im assuming backports do same thing for hoary as it does for breezy. i got rid of mine for breezy cause they said it was bad am i missing something? not sure if i should add them back or not.
