Just from reading many posts, I know I'm looking at getting my head handed to me by certain individuals. Solely for hardware purchasing purposes, i'm asking for a guestimation as to when 8.10 will be in beta/final release. Now please, like i said, i'm only asking for a guestimation because i am looking at purchasing hardware that works with kubuntu 8.10 and not 7.10 and the timing of the beta release may sway my decision. In addition, there a few fixes in the upcoming releases that i would just wait for, before i go trying to fix them and screw my core up. Thanks guys.
