Progeny had its first official release a couple weeks ago.  The impression
I get of it (from what I've read; I haven't tried it yet) is "Mandrake
based on .deb" -- in other words, quite nice.  There are instructions on
the web site to upgrade from potato, woody, and Corel.  I also snagged
the installation ISOs and burned them to CD, if anyone would like for me
to make them a copy.  (I believe they're shipping to stores and offering
the CDs for purchase this week.)
