I haven't called your favorite distro a mess, so why do you call a
configuration with slightly fewer bugs a mess? Rather than flaming
"mess", what solution would you suggest when a combination of needed
features is not available in a single release? Put the firm's
employees on a six-month hiatus?
Support for techies is Google, source code, and mailing lists - in
that order. You test the plausible solutions, select the best, and
then deploy. It's the same whether you're pinning or editing conf
files or recompiling or dist-upgrading or whatever.
Now the non-techie shouldn't be pinning or editing conf files or
recompiling or dist-upgrading or whatever, but the non-techie's tech
will pin or edit or recompile or dist-upgrade or whatever as needed.
