    Question Why do you always use the latest version of the distro

    I wonder why people upgrade right away to the latest version, while they tweaked the distro and everything works , taking such a huge risk breaking things, while the distro still has a year to go.. I always use the second latest because most of the introduction bugs are solved.... I always think the latest version is more for the developers even if it's assigned stable

    Because we want perfection. That's why.

    I'm always hoping that things are better - more reliable, less problematic and faster. Is it? Somewhat but the degree seem less as time goes on which just demonstrates how much better Linux/openSuse/KDE are then they used to be.

    And if things are mucked then it's a challenge and gives me something to futz with for a while and then feel good about after I resolve them - maybe a bit masochistic

    Perfection == No bugs. Going with the bleeding edge is the antithesis of this.

    Cannot realy answer this because I don't do this (seems that I am not "people"). I only go to a next release when pressed to.

    I installed 10.1 some time ago. I continued using it until it was no longer supported. Then 11.0 came out at around the same time, so I went with that. And I kept that until it was off support. Then I went with 11.3.

    With 11.3, I switched from gnome to KDE, and I liked it. But the KDE with 11.3 seemed a bit buggy. So I chose to move to 4.4. KDE seems better with 11.4, though some folk are never happy.

    Whether I will stick with 11.4 till it is off support, or install another version earlier - I'll decide that over time.

    Initially because the LInux desktop was a maturing project and each distro tended to bring more features - once KDE4 became reasonably stable, because each version has brought new features which, along with improvements to non-KDE apps, enhance what I can do with the same hardware.
