Which is wonderful and as it should be. The problem is with making it
default. That is just bad thinking when it comes to a distro for
newbies or real use.

I run the latest and greatest software (cvs) on some projects like
Blender3d. I have crashes and I file bug reports. That is MY choice. I
expect my distro to only make things default when they are as strong
or stronger that the current default!!! I don't even expect it to be
perfect, just better. That is the whole idea right?  It must be a step
forward NOT backwards. I think this is simple to understand and it is
easy to see the need for it with a distro like *ubuntu. Anything less
in unprofessional.
