Canonical needs to work on compatibilty and reducing bugs rather than introducing new features as fast as possible.

Every time I do an upgrade I have a problem with something that used to work.

I hate to bite the free hand that feeds me but Canonical needs to re-prioritize and re-focus to protect the existing user base and slow down the too-rapid introduction of new features.

Not that they'll hear it here, but...*bump*.

It sounds like maybe it is time to check out a different distro.

You sound like you need (RH)EL6, no more problems for the next 7-10 years.
Why would you stick with a 6 months release schedule distro if you don't want problems?

Agreed, unless you need some bleeding edge package, it is better to stick to a long time support release.
