I like 1 release a year. It's waaaay easier to be able to work with Linux vs just keep installing Linux

I believe Mandriva did a poll among it's paying customers, and most of us (I'm a paying customer) wanted a 1-year release cycle.

For latest-version addicted users[*] there's always cooker, which is a lot of fun

[*] I was one of those before ;)

Peace!
