Lot's of posts but nothing anybody is going to say is going to change
people's minds on this. It seems with each new kernel change/distro,
this repeats itself.

It seems to me that the people that have a long time investment in Linux
understand what occurs when there is a major upgrade and hold back
installing it on production systems, be they server or workstation until
the issues get worked out. Newer Linux users expect every new distro
(without regard to kernel version upgrades) to work extremely well. 

I would suggest that rather than trying to convince people to lower
their expectations, it would be more beneficial to suggest that we work
together to solve the problems and develop a better sense of humor (i.e.
less whining) about the problems we face.
