YMMV â Your Mileage May Vary

The Myth of the Bad Ubuntu Release

,----[ Quote ]
| OK, so thereâs something that always 
| disturbs me when release time comes around. 
| Hereâs a rough chronology of every Ubuntu 
| release (at least since Iâve been involved, 
| so that goes back to Breezy Badger) and what 
| the âbuzzâ around the internet says:
|    1. Alphas come out: buzz says,  ânot much 
|    to see here folks, move along.â
|    2. Beta comes out: buzz says, âwow, great 
|    release, but whereâs the new artwork?â 
|    and Iâm thinking âHow on earth can the 
|    pull this off?â
|    3. RC rolls around: buzz says, ânew 
|    awesomeness right around the corner!â and 
|    Iâm thinking âdarn it, thereâs a lot more 
|    to do.â
|    4. Release day: buzz says, âOMG I have to 
|    download thisâ and Iâm thinking âphew, 
|    thatâs over, Iâm glad I rsyncâd/zsyncâd 
|    yesterdayâ
|    5. The week after a release: buzz says, 
|    âNoooooo, this is the worst Ubuntu 
|    release EVER!â and Iâm thinking âwow, 
|    they really did pull it offâ
|    6. Rinse and Repeat
