Sure, but it works both ways: sometimes getting up-to-date software
from upstream fixes bugs that in a more "stable" distro you'd have to
wait much longer for.  For example, I used to have to install the
proprietary nvidia driver, but one day I upgraded Fedora and the
latest nouveau driver just worked.  There's a lot to be said for that.
