Well, this isn't true. Vinux has been recommending upgrading packages 
since Vinux 4, and there were very good and sound reasons to be cautious 
upgrading packages in Vinux 3 and earlier, such as breaking the 
accessibility stack.

I'm not going to try to convince anyone to use Vinux, and I'm not going 
to change any opinions based on ignorance and closed mindedness, but I 
would caution everyone else not to draw your conclusions based on 
messages like this to the list that are based on dated knowledge and 
prejudiced opinions. I'd encourage anyone to do their own research and 
draw their own conclusions. In the case of Vinux, join the Vinux support 
list and check out the Vinux wiki. This isn't true just for Vinux. I'd 
give this same advice when talking about Sonar, Android or any other 
product where opinions are so easy to come by.
