Releasing every 6 months has its advantages, though.
This means that instead of all-at-once massive changes that are
hard to deal with, changes are a little more gradual.
Thus, for example, if something stops working, it's easier to find the problem.
It also makes it much easier to stay "more current", which on the desktop is more important because many of the desktop applications are faster-moving (and many people REALLY need/want those new features).
Six month upgrades don't make sense on many servers, but on a desktop they make a certain amount of sense.
