Release cycles

A 6 month release cycle is hard to keep up with. This is what it what it should be: a yearly new release and a safe application backport and bugfix six months after that. At least the backport bugfix release would be far more stable, in theory, than the releases.

I used to like RedHat desktop, which ceased in version 9. They did set standards. But Ubuntu came with great ideas and an ugly theme and stormed every Linux distro out there. Fedora now runs behind Ubuntu's trail.
