Whatever, keep using 0.99 then, or better go back to first version that
just printed AAAABBBB on the screen. Everything from there is a
Everything since this is a regression in certain areas, but
you seem to be missing the essential point that I stated several ways: These regressions come along with progressions. The value of the progressions outweigh the cost of the regressions. I hate in some way every "upgrade" I make, but I make them anyway.
Everyone has to balance the regressions and the progressions in deciding whether to upgrade, and distributors tend to make sure the balance is almost always in favor of the progressions. We can speak of a "net regression," which most people would not find current Linux to be with respect to 0.99.
