Re: amd64 build of Lubuntu.



I had a chance two download the new 64-bit* Peppermint Two *image today and
I must say that it looks great!  Seems to be using a little less battery
that One or Ice did.  I'm going to replace the 64-bit Lubuntu build you gave
us with P2 on my Acer 3820 and keep 32-bit Lubuntu on my Acer 1810 until
11.10 is released.

I think both distros are going to be a huge hit.
