I'm constantly amazed (and saddened for nando) about the rate of  
change in Fedora. On Mac, I was quite grateful for the Leopard delay.  
I guess the only solution (if you want slower development) would be to  
switch to Windows where OS changes take many years.

“Every composer – at all times and in all cases – gives his own  
interpretation of how modern society is structured: whether actively  
or passively, consciously or unconsciously, he makes choices in this  
regard. He may be conservative or he may subject himself to continual  
renewal; or he may strive for a revolutionary, historical or social  
palingenesis." - Luigi Nono
