Still use it, but it is on a slower CPU (AMD K7 500
Mhz) and doubles as desktop for work.  With every
kernel upgrade, I have to reinstall the Cisco VPN
client for work, and that is terribly annoying (See
response to question #3).  I also changed because all
the MIDI/audio packages I use are already included in
Musix.  I found a good combination of command line
boot options for the Musix boot CD; I could not get
Demudi to boot on my NetVista 8305.

Never used "stable" releases, just "testing" and did
upgrades as libraries, kernel, etc required.
