Don't dream. It's reality. I've tested Glibc-2.2 extensively and everything 
runs fine. X402, KDE, OpenGL/mesa/glut and a whole bunch of other software 
(haven't tried Netscape yt). I'm not done testing but so far everything 
worked just fine, so I think glibc-2.2 isn't all that bad as it was in RedHat7

2.4 kernel works great too (i've been running a test12 kernel though. Havne't 
tried the official release yet but I don't imagine it'll be worse than the 
test12 one).

All we are waiting for I think is GCC-3.0 to be releaed, although I have 
absolutely no idea how long that's going to take. Therefore I am not sure if 
we should run a glibc-2.2 system without gcc-3.0. The fact that it runs 
superb  on my end doesnt' mean that everybody else has no problems or feels 
comfortable with gcc-2.95.2 running under glibc-2.2
