Well, I upgrade to 2.6.21-ck2 and install it on my two pcs (I had before
2.6.20-ck1 on both) and the installation work, like always, fine. No
problems. On the pc I use most (the better one :) ) I didn't feel much
difference from 2.6.20-ck1 to 2.6.21-ck2 (for regular Desktop use), but
in the older pc, where my brother works, he says that was even more
