I don't understand. If those who use Evergreen don't want anything that's new then why not simply install, say, 12.1 and switch off any and all options which will update that system? That is, no patches, no *new* versions of Firefox or Thunderbird or whatever. Just stick with the original installation and stay with it for 20 years or so - if this is what "Evergreeners" are all about.


We want the security patches and maintenance. We do not want new versions of things, no new features, no unneeded changes. Stability, not bleeding edge. Conservative, not revolution. A long term support version, without paying for a expensive commercial version like SLES.
