I don't want to upgrade that often. The only other OS around doing
6-months cycles is ubuntu, and it does not look to work so well. I
must say I prefer a feature-based release cycle, with a list of
features to have (and not to have, eventually), and release when
that's ready. The cycles could be short depending on the feature set.
But I'd say a release every 2 years is still fine for most people.
