People who want Evergreen *do not* want *anything* that's new. So in
circumstances where Evergreen is appropriate, switching to Tumbleweed
instead is *NOT* appropriate.
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?
Evergreen is long-term support, Tumbleweed is for early adopters (aka
bleeding edge), Factory is experimental.

See my reply to dd.

Tumbleweed is NOT "bleeding edge".

Factory is "bleeding edge", but it is also "not quite fully tested - use at your own risk; if it breaks you get to keep the pieces".
