    That is where a slightly older kernel as alternative in the boot menu helps. Xubuntu has that. As it is a derivative of Ubuntu, Ubuntu vanilla should have it too.

    I guess this kind of thing is difficult, because especially on the more on-the-fringes hardware, eg SPARC and PPC, things apparently break fairly regularly. Hard to find if not all intel laptops were affected too.

    Still shouldn't happen though.

    There have been non rolling releases that also break your setup, largely because they don't always completely update to later versions that have security patches/bug fixes for certain software.

    Newest software can break stuff, but it can also fix stuff that has been broken (and not noticed) for some reason in the past.

    I'll bite
    Running Debian testing for abt 10 years and my only hiccups were when fglrx was removed, 2x HD7870 setup in CrossFire which was a bummer, and recently booting with a new linux-image abt a month or 2 ago but that was easily alleviated by booting into the previous one.
    For the rest it still is rock solid to me can't say anything about other ppl.

    Not to be outdone, AMD laptop users should also avoid linux 5.19.x to avoid broken suspend/resume.

    Arch is awesome. Yes, when you install it you sign for some eventual breakage. But that's the reason you install the OS from the ground up and you never update if you don't have the time to fix things: you will have to eventually fix it. That said, I've been an Arch user for about 8 years, and I had breakages about two times. Archlinuxarm thoug is a different beast. In the Arch install I have in my Pi4 board, things breaking on updates is not uncommon at all

    Me, fondly remembering when Win2K shipped with 63,000 known bugs.

    Urging developers to clean up their code, a Microsoft exec says: 'How many of you would spend $500 on a piece of software with over 63,000 potential known defects?' It ships Thursday.

    Mine is Intel only (Carbon X1 8th Gen), so that's not (necessarily) it.
