Is it decent? I tried 5.0, but it would always give me an install error with the regular CD (not being able to fetch packages or something). I managed to get 5.0 installed through ZenLive 5.0 but Lilo would always mess up, upgrading from a snapshot repo broke stuff, and installing a nvidia driver broke evene more stuff.

It was kind of scary on the mailing lists. A bug popped up two hours before the release, but it's squashed now and 5.2 is online.
