Debian and its clones Most mainstream distributions, like Ubuntu, Fedora, and Mandriva, have already adopted a time-based release schedule, meaning that releases are not done on a feature basis, but according to a pre-determined time schedule. The Debian project has announced that it has adopted a time-based release schedule too.

For me, it's that most of the packages in stable are pretty old - and, if you want something new, maybe something that came out in the last six months (or a year), it might not be available at all. Unstable doesn't necessarily help much: it's, well, unstable, and while it's packages are a little newer, it may well not have what you want either.
