BSD

+ - Distributions breaking systems more often lately?

Submitted by cracauer
cracauer (6353) writes "I've been discussing this with my OpenSource friends without coming to an agreement: did stability of Linux and BSD distributions wrt committing changes that break a running system become worse lately?

My thesis is that (1) each package is more complex which leads to (2) each individual package maintainer concentrating on fewer packages which (3) makes the perceived (to them) importance of this package go up which (4) makes them more eager to push down changes that improve the package but might hose people's ystems. My friends say there has been no change there. Instead the problem is that my personal systems got more complex and hence I get stabbed in the back more often. What's your take?"
