I'll test the new one when you post it, but frankly for a portable wallet 21b is far superior to the latest versions.
lol I'll quote one of your lines on that one "ye knows not of what he speaks"
Would you like to explain why ?
Too confusing for the average user with the multiple choices.
In what context ? the whole thing or just the bitcoin client ?
I recognize that 99% of the usability and users of LinuxCoin is for mining and miners.
My primary interest is to have an offline wallet system for the average user. Towards that effort I made the following posts:

BitCoin Client Selection Suggestions.
Being that you mentioned you were re-doing the Password issues of the secure bitcoin selection I did not bother to test as I had planned but will offer this set of suggestions:
I strongly suggest that you do *not* have a secure and non secure bitcoin client options. This will invariably lead to supreme confusion with average users.
Just have one bitcoin selection which asks for a password (none of that silly mount dev stuff please). The password can be <Enter> (I would suggest this on fresh startup). Upon successful entry of existing password user should be allowed option to change password or continue directly to bitcoin client.
It would be extremely helpful if there was an easy (GUI) way for the user to email the encrypted wallet.dat file (with the same password used for entry to bitcoin). It would be best if this file could be unencrypted in both windows and Linux, but if only Linuxcoin that will suffice.
Please get something on screen quicker and leave the splash screen, or at least text saying one moment please. Those long black screens make one feel like nothing is happening.
Seems to take forever and that black screen of death sucks. Do something as soon as I click shutdown and let me know when to take out the usb like the last version did. I seem to wait an eternity and when I do yank the usb it freaks out and vomits text all over the screen
The new browser is ugly and seems incredibly slow. I would prefer a return to chromium. It would be *really* nice if java was installed.

Well I am extremely disapointed. The bitcoin client password tool does not work at all.
It does not matter what I pick, secured or unsecured I get the same wallet
In secured it does not matter what I type in or don't type as a password I see the same wallet
You have created a tool that is the beginning of a near perfect USB offline wallet system, but IMHO the average (not techie miner) person does not quite have have the ability to understand and use the newer system easily. I spent hours fiddling with passwords and gave up in frustration.
Cryptkeeper for the 21b helps, but the passwording scheme described above would be near perfect (again IMHO) if it were possible to implement.
