You just gave me the idea for a naming method - new "unstable" ISOs
will be "inx-eternal"  ;)

My second box is running INX exclusively ;-) But it has added bits like
sshd, apache2 and so on. Well, OK I'll come clean - it also has
*shudder* X,which I use to run a few apps over remote ssh, so I guess it
isn't *really* INX at all... :-(

Yes, INX is a "niche within a niche" I guess. Stability in the usual
sense of the word isn't really an issue anyway, because INX is
ubuntu-minimal / ubuntu-standard plus bits and pieces. The underlying OS
is basic, and rock solid.

Hmm - what would constitute a major milestone I wonder? A
reasonable installer would probably qualify I suppose.
