Nevada B124 is so good

Hi All,

 Well I finally upgraded the Asus C90S to Nevada B124 from B116.

The speed improvement in incredible, Compiz 3D cube is coming up without any pause.

Playing a movie in Mplayer, then spinning the cube just shows the movie playing without issues.

It's got the Gnome 2.27 desktop, pretty cool, 2.28 should be in B125.

I've found a funny with rhythmbox and removable media, if I have any plugged in it crashes, have not had time to really look at the code yet.

Maybe it's the same issue with Songbird that will not come up.

This is my last Nevada laptop, everything else is on OpenSolaris 1002 B123.

Up to Canada next week for vacation with Grandkids, my big problem is I cannot work out which netbook to take, bad problem.
