Oliver White asks us to help by finding and complaining about bugs. For non-professional programmers, there is a threshhold effect the software must cross in order not to take to much time away from other tasks. I tried to take mozilla's advice and use the m3 release of apprunner as my usual browser but had to get rid of it after it crashed my powerbook twice requiring a re-install of the system before it would even boot. I am willing to put some effort into hammering out the bugs in new software but I draw the line at programs that trash my system folder. Theres' too little time in the day already. I will try again with m4.
