thats something you read everywhere, i'm wondering, just out of
curiosity, (not because i would like this model, in fact i dont think it
can work)...if anybody ever tried to release this way (waiting until
everything that is the latest stuff is stable at the same time and do a
quick release)....

has anybody ever see such a project or is this answer i read everywhere
always only an assumption that it just _cant_ work ?


got ubuntu ? -----------> GET UBUNTU !!!
