That's because a technical support list isn't the best place to gain a
good understanding of a product's reliability.  Most of the people
posting are posting because they had an issue, not because everything
worked fine.  The folks for whom everything works great out of the box
generally aren't posting about that fact.

"Hey, I installed FC3 today and everything worked!"

"Hey, guys, when I installed FC4 over my FC2 installation, the upgrade
was smooth.  Despite this, I expected evolution to not work.  To my
surprise it works great!"

"In upgrading my server from FC3 to FC4, I forgot to dump my MySQL
databases first.  Fortunately, all my databases worked just fine
without my having to do anything."

These are not the kinds of stories posted to a list like this (in
general).  So of course you're going to get the impression that
"everything is broken" when the only people talking are the ones
posting things that are broken *for them*.
