The release itself wasn't so much hard work as it was boring and error-prone.
The real problem: Each time you start up your Ubuntu (used to build the
release) in the VM it wants to update itself, reboot itself. If it
doesn't boot anymore afterwards, you have to figure out how to boot with
the previous kernel first. And there so many people say Linux is so much
better than Windoze. Well, maybe it had something to do with
compatibility to VirtualBox, but I'm not quite ready to go dual-boot
just yet.

AFAIK, ZIP doesn't support the execution flag. Not sure that this can be
fixed at all. Or am I wrong?
