Yes, i think i worth the price! :D

i will install icewm because the lxde has the menu broken, in the taskbar
does nt open, i open the applications from the File manager > Applications,
in the left column of the file manager.

On boot, it stalls for a while (40 sec.) in the "Started /home..." and it
has a message about a missing dependancy in cryptography .... something
like that, if it is interresting i will note the excact message when i will
be at home, this evening.

So far, my upgarde has broked my system. I hope that is not the case for
many users.
