The out-of-date drives me a bit nuts: samba 4.1.4 being
a good example.  I understand why they do it.  I just
think they should get off the butts and move a bit faster.
Criminy, I can't even run the latest Xfce on it!

Hi John,

Don't get me wrong.  I still use it.  I just get
frustrated with it at times.  I think they go too far
with the out-of-date stuff at times.
