Yup, but dapper was a bit buggy, after a fresh install there were always like 200MB of upgrades possible, not really a good sign for a few months old OS, but the 6.06.1 should solve a lot of those problems. Ah well I'm gonna go for edgy soon :p me doesn't like stability, so boring...

I disagree with you there...Have you ever tried to install, say Fedora 1-2months after release? Unless you use a respin, upgrading with development tools weighs in at more like 3-400MB. It sometimes has less to do with the distro and more to do with the actual packages installed.

If the maintainer patches, Ubuntu, Fedura, SUSE , whoever, patches...not a real sign of how good the distro is, just because it has alot of patches to install.

Yes but outside the packages, what's different about other distros?

And I'll take the boringness of "it just works" (allowing me to complete my projects) any day.

OTOH, "wild" code doesn't get tamed unless the pioneers go out there and explore.

Sometimes those aren't bug fix updates but feature updates which the distributor believed wouldn't introduce problems. For example, a new version of Gaim is only going to break Gaim if it's broken so you can test Gaim and then send out the update for it even if it's only a feature improvement and not a security fix.
