I have a very strong suspicion that whoever is arguing for this Evergreen version and against what Tumbleweed is all about is doing so without the slightest idea of having actually installed and used Tumbleweed.

I'm not, indeed we are not, arguing against Tumbleweed.

You are not understanding.

Tumbleweed fills a need.

Evergreen fills a different need.

Both are different approaches, and both are valid. Some people want one type of maintenance and development, other people prefer the other type. So what? This is Linux, we have choices.

I cannot disagree with that.

But all choices have a cost - which is what I was trying to point out: having someone spend time in porting programs to an out-of-date version instead of spending that valuable time in doing something for the latest version(s).
