Not to start a flame. I do not think we can look at the early 5.x releases and say problems we have had are the release engineer's mistakes. There is a point when you have to get what's being working on out the door and into as many hands as possible before you can progress to the next step, as now we see series 6 as the continuance of what 5 started. In a lot of ways 5 needed to have problems in order for 6 to release as a stronger system.

As a user I have had both really good and really bad experiences using 5 since it was -CURRENT, so I am not saying the people reporting problems are wrong, or wrong for talking about them, just that the growth of an operating system is a subtle affair.
