Should we take a poll on how many people want their machines to be

I can't say that I've experienced that, and I've been using Linux for
quite a few years, now.  I can say that I've seen some showstoppers when
some driver has been updated on Windows, and reverting that can be quite
a nightmare.

In either system, I've done the odd update that's knobbled that
particular thing, but that's about all.  e.g. An update to your email
client turns out to be a real downgrade.

I recall a kernel before a udev update on F7 that stopped all the USB plugin memory to stop working. Then the udev update arrived and all worked again. Now I'm worried that a new kernel will cause my nVIDIA fix to fail. Or a udev update.

This didn't cause the computer to not boot, but it does make you gun-shy.
