    But if you read peoples complaints about regression they are nearly
    always to do with hardware that used to work not working any more ..
    alps touchpads, sound cards, software suspend.. so these people still
    gain nothing by you regression testing anything so you still get as
    many reports.. the -rc series is meant to provide the testing for the
    release so nothing really big gets through (like can't boot from IDE
    anymore or something like that)....
