    I downloaded them. I may just do the update upgrade for now on my 3B+. Starting over from scratch means setting up my RTC again. Thats a little bit of a pain. I have two new Micro SD cards I'll put the new image on, then boot up one of my spare Pi Zero W's.

    I have to clean up some clutter to get near my spare monitor to plug a Pi into it lol. Shouldn't take too long though, I'll get back to you in a bit with my first impressions.

    Setup was pretty quick, still have a black boarder around my screen after checking the box during the quick setup. Very thin black boarder mind you, not enough to really worry about. Just barely enough to see and I likely wouldn't have noticed it if I hadn't looked for it. Is it faster, I won't really be able to tell. I haven't used a Pi as a PC in a long time. I just redid my spare 3B+.

    I likely will not see much difference in the latest Raspbian Image
    I had a Pimorini order for a complete Pan Tilt kit all ready to send ,but decided not to waste any more money on my Pi buying habit ,,and try and get into a Pi "DOING" habit .

    Interesting you should mention that. I also have the full pan tilt in my cart ready to order. I needed my other stuff from Adafruit a bit more though and can't afford both. Plus I'm still mulling over if I really want it need it. I'll want to set it up to work in Motion Eye. Somebody on the Pimoroni forum was trying it but appears to have given up. I think its doable, just not how they wanted it to work.
