	If that works on the 701 (which is a lot smaller, in every sense, 
and slower than the 1000), it'll be the best news in a month of Sundays.

	My experience with F10, which I also installed (on the 701, which 
is all I have yet) was not encouraging. It installed all right -- but 
took over ten minutes (yes, no typo : > 6000 seconds) to boot, which made 
it unusable for my purposes. 

	I'm told, here and iirc by you inter alia, that that was 
anomalous: I must have messed up the install somehow. That's easy to 
believe, but it wasn't worth going into then, much less now. 

	With F11 due out in a week, I'll wait maybe two, get a  copy, and 
try it. Thanks for the clue!
