Which goes back to my comment that people should consider Ubuntu LTS
and not non-LTS, because they will get 3-5 years of updates while minimizing
changes and, therefore, integration/regression issues, in LTS, unlike non-LTS.
I know people keep trying to dissect my statements and pull them apart and
otherwise try to pigeon-hole them to fit a specific, narrow view. But my statements
actually apply in many directions.
Again, this is software [engineering] 101. Change code, get integration and
regular regression issues. Don't change code, lose out on new features. It's
the catch-22 SuSE ran into, Red Hat ran into and Ubuntu has run into.

Thats ok provided you can do incremental updates.
On my main Linux workstation I've been locked into a kernel dependency
