Is there a System Administrator in the house?
Cause the reasons why we freeze releases are quite clear to me, and anyone else who ever has to manage a couple *hundred* machines (much less 30,000), and we (I) find it mind-boggling that they're not clear to everyone else, either.
You play games with release configuration management practices, and what you're doing is making it impossible for professional sysadmin types to practically test your new release to make sure it won't bomb their users machines when they deploy it.
If anyone wants to know why Linux *still* can't make any inroads on the desktop at any kind of real scale? This schidt's it, right here.
