      A rolling release might get me back into Ubuntu as my main OS again.

        I'm about to give out hope and get into Arch. Would have done it already if I wasn't too lazy.

            In Linux, programming and IT in general there are always some myths that tend to spread because most think "they know" and know shit...

            One such myth is that a rolling release model equals instability. This is totally BS for anyone who has used a rolling release distro in the past. It makes me lose my hope for humanity each time some moron perpetuates this myth...

              Indeed. Gentoo by default is boringly stable. They still have GRUB 2 marked as unstable, for instance.

                of the wasteland.

                I am just

                as I go along"

                    Why not have the universe repository be rolling?
                    While keeping the main repository the way it is?

                    Or keep software-installed-by-default (software shipped on the ISO image) the way it is, but user-installed-software be rolling?
