I would be inclined to search something not "calmed down", as i'm very
happy with factory on my main machine as it is today. Where will all the
fun be if it always just works? :-)
Those that run factory already should probably not
answer this question ;)
Oh, come on. We should really still provide something that resembles
todays factory for the brave!
Actually for me, running factory (today) is less painful than upgrading
twice a year: I have small breakages every now and then, but seldom
really big stuff. And I have to fix one thing per week. After updating
my server from 12.3 to 13.1, I have to fix up lots of small things, all
at once, to get it working as intended again.
And I won't even talk about updating my kids' machines (they use GNOME
-- nothing anyone ever would even consider when running Factory :-)),
that is always a hell of a task to get running again. I'll probably also
might switch them to Factory / XFCE.
