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.

Creating select backports isn't terrible complicated.

Creating select backports isn't terrible complicated.

It is when it pulls the entire next release of the DE into a distro version that it didn't come with. And even if it worked, I can't justify doing that kind of completely unsupported open-heart surgery on our business critical desktops. Certainly not when there are better, and supported, solutions.
