Sorry, no, Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS, currently frozen for lack of a newer kernel 
that is RTAI patchable.

I can't argue with that other than to point out that I too am on the claws 
list, and its teething problems are stopping me from converting in the 
middle of the creek.  The maildir format I am using with KDE is also 
apparently NOT importable between them.

I just tried it and kmail was made nice and snappy again, but now that 
Konsole is being spammed by everything akonadi does.  Which is a lot of 
noise to me.

Whatever method used, with the traffic here, its not near often enough.

I will probably switch as I like its face, but when I switch drives and 
install the next official lcnc cd on a fresh drive.  I expect that 
announcement most any time, but for sure when 14.04 LTS is out so Sam, Jon, 
John and Michael know which kernel they have to hack the hell out of to 
make it real time.

Cheers, Gene
