More precisely the point is to have an as stable release as possible.
The point is *not* prevent users from doing there individual choises
regarding software they install. Many want the peace of mind the stable
release brings, but at the same time need a recent version of some piece
of software that's essential to them (sticking with a two year old
version may not always be feasible).

Want new software, get the new release.

It's not that simple, as I just explained.
