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".
According to your post: "[tumbleweed is] for users that want the
newest". If that is not the leading edge, I don't know what is.

There is a significant difference between "bleeding edge" [untested!]
and "leading 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".
Sounds experimental to me. I'll stick to my version :-)

Factory is "bleeding edge", nobody said it wasn't.

Anyway - the entire current-is-unstable meme is a bit nuts. I'm on
openSUSE 12.2 + GNOME 3.6. It is *very* stable. I use if for 60+ hours
a day; between two laptops, a netbook, and a serious workstation. I've
used 11.4, 12.0, 12.1, etc...

Honestly, 12.0 had some issues [at least of me on my hardwares - it is
important to remember that all such reports are anecdotal, including
mine], but due to one rather crunchy and rough upgrade it is irrational
to paint 'current' as "unstable".
