Thanks for the heads up, Peter!
I knew they had this in the works, but hadn't checked the status
lately.... been using Mint for a little over two years and really
enjoy it.  I *really* like the idea of the rolling release idea!

I'll grab a copy here in the next day or two and put it on my
"non-production" laptop for a test spin.

Best regards,
David C.
