Hmm...  One, because I have the disk, and two, because there are some 
apps and hooks in the earlier versions that I wanted to recover.  Its 
also nice to be able to step back a kernel or two on boot to experience 
the differences.  To each, his own, I guess.  While I don't miss the 
wifi problems from 6.06LTS and 6.10, there are some things I miss about 
it too.  Problem there is that all those repositories are gone now...
