Sorry folks, I meant to have this out a couple weeks ago, but I've been busy..

Basically, the feeling I got from the most folks was "no, it's not worth it
if you're not running on a HyperSparc chip machine, like the Sparc 20."
I also got "Yes, it's worth it. It has all the patches pre-installed and
is cleaner and more stable"
and "Maybe.. there's a shelltool fix, and PPP is better"
and some "Depends, you don't get much other than a few patches and bug fixes."
definately not 1
don't bother 5
yes, patches 4
But it would definately seem to be more in the don't bother category..
