I still use ubuntu for my laptops (which a couple have a frontend
installed), but I use minimyth for my FEs and RHEL6 (which I notice
was released this weekend, so 3rd party redistributors should have
distros out shortly) for my main backend. Ubuntu's (lack of)

package, so changing to another would have no 0.24 packages.. It just
got frustrating that partial dependencies are allowed to be
