Absolutely. After all, it is not everyone that has the interest and
time to pursue this although Linux distros have surely made it quite
easy by now to use.
I recently bought Windows 7 for our children to play games and I am not
seeing a terrible problem with Linksys 64-bit wireless drivers not
working. And I paid for it. And I have to spend research time to fix
it. So in this case it's really a loss ! :-) And in this regard, Linux
is faring very well.
I still am reluctant to upgrade when everything works well although now
that's at least two years (Fedora 8) I haven't done so and since things
changes quite fast in Open Source as bugs are fixed and features added,
I am now considering it.
I'd like to thank Fons for mentionning ArchLinux. I used to build my
own Linux system - and would like to go back to that - although in the
meanwhile ArchLinux seems to be quite close philosophically to this, as
well as the side project Chakra Linux, which is ArchLinux + KDEmod.
About what Ken has mentioned: well, it's up to the individual to
upgrade or not after all. ArchLinux is a rolling release type of thing
but that does not mean that I have to update daily. Or monthly. Or
even yearly. It's up to me. And as with Ken, I tend to prefer things
when they work ;-)
