i just prefer opensource that is not precompiled as server platform, 
mostly what is precompiled needs to be recompiled to support what i need 
anyway, thats why i use gentoo/funtoo/freebsd :=)

and yes i found that opensuse is more nice one to keep as desktop os

shit happens, he does not like opensource then ?, what was a major show 
stopper for me was the splited config that needs whole new layout to 
keep the old 1.x style config to work in 2.x, and gentoo infra just 
ignored my call for help geting it back as long Timo keeps wiki for 1.x

hope it makes sense to other why

same here, but i try to see how 2.x works here if i get succed with it 
i properly change to dovecot 2.1 when i build a new server, but change 
the stable one, no thanks
