This is true.  I tried to dual boot Edgy when it was stable with
Feisty alpha 3.  I never bothered to change what partition I was going
to boot, and ended up using Feisty all the time (made my ~ unusable
for Edgy after a few weeks...yes, I shared /home with Edgy, Feisty,
Fedora Core 6, and Sabayon all at once at one point).  Others may
never bother to boot the unstable one.  And if they're separate
computers, well, most people have their "main" computer, and since
we're being told "don't put it on your production machine!!!" (not
that I ever listen, but I can't follow directions ;) ), it's going to
end up on the disused computer in the far corner of the house that
occasionally gets fired up when someone else in the family is hogging
the main computer.  That minimal use will hardly result in finding all
the bugs and their causes.
