      Ah yes, someone else who noticed that older a debian stable a release is, the more critical bugs it has. The writing is on the wall (or rather the bug graphs debian produce).

      I like to think of it as the thrift shop OS, lots of stuff on the shelves, just make sure you test it yourself, patch it yourself, file upstream bugs yourself, and sit in the debian channels. Which are *really* active, due to the above. Most of all don't forget to contribute some buggy packages yourself while trying to integrate with the tower, then make and abandon your own spin.

      And finally watch in awe as debian decimate the debian live team and wonder what to do about for years to come. And watch in horror as others still go down the rabbit hole.

        Point release for stable here are cumulative updates for production system

        Stable means production, testing is testing, unstable is development... but you use unstable as trollment ready and that is your problem

          That tells me: the newer the SW you run, the greater the amount of unknown bugs.
          E: which really isn't anything new in this industry.

            Conclusion: a stable distribution is a myth. Mythbusters could test that.
            Of course you don't I am sure you can find much better trolling systems than Debian unstable, so you could troll even more beautifully

            But sado-maso ego instincts are stronger than brainlessness, isn't it?

              With Debian testing and sid you can use packages from the "stable" repository and many ubuntu ppas.
              Of course, you can also play your PlayStation while California is burning We will save pigs, but trolls nope

                Don't bother explaining to him, he's one of those willfully ignorant trolls who prefer to stick their hand under the sand and repeat their bullshit ad-nauseam, believing it will become true the more they repeat it.

                BTW, you are almost right.

                Stable means no changes (except security fixes and minor bug fixes), hence stability from change. You know that by updating, your workflow is the exact same.
                Unstable means that it is changing constantly (basically same as development so you're right). For a user it means that an update might break his workflow or change his workflow. For most users this is not desirable.

                  Exactly this. Stable means that all API:s and functionalities are set in stone so that e.g enterprises can certify their software as guaranteed to work on the system. Which is why something like rolling releases will never ever be used in the enterprise market. This is one of the reasons why IT departments hate Windows since each new Service Pack introduces new functionality and changes things around requiring software to be re-certified which is a lengthy and costly procedure.

                    He adds so many external things to his system, I wonder if you can really call it "using unstable" anymore as it's technically some sort of Frankendebian.
