Hmm, I would not say that Fedora is in poor shape :). When we speak about
reputation believe me it's way worse if an update breaks smth on my sister's
computer than me having to fix smth during installation and verifying it works
before giving her the computer. And break does not only mean what we accept as
a break, e.g. a simple fonts hinting change will be considered a break if
this causes some of her documents to look in a different way. We are not
speaking for tech savy users only and change for this type of users means you
have to take care of "This update broke my homework formatting" or "Where is
that blue icon for usb devices now?" and etc.
