Wow, can you please tell me an OS where there are no issues with any software when upgrading between releases?


OS X? Windows when upgrading to SPs? Of course there are always chances something somewhere might break, but Linux Desktop is just ridiculous. Sometimes it's *designed* to break, like when PulseAudio got released, or every time X.org breaks Intel and Nvidia proprietary GPU drivers, and it's practically *designed* to break the upgrade and drop you to a blank screen or CLI.

Anyway, Ubuntu's problem is that even on a clean installation, sometimes old app binaries just don't work, because the API is not stable.

And don't get me started how most distros get upgraded on a breakneck pace. I can do a format and clean install everytime a new Windows version rolls out, but every 6 months?
