    They shipped an unreleased version of Firefox in an LTS release and I think everyone that struggled with PulseAudio would disagree with that statement. However, they haven't forgotten they run servers too so I expected them to be reasonably conservative with choice of kernel. I look forward to it anyway, skipped 8.10 and will go from 8.04 to 9.04

      If you need or want/like a blending edge distribution with the latest Kernel, Xorg, DE or WM, you can use a rolling release distro.

      There are some of those, my favorite is Arch Linux. You have only to install the OS once and update. You don't have to wait 6 or 8 months to have the latest upstream stable software.
