...Nice to hear that I am not lonesome of this boat. I must admit that I
sometimes cope with some old bugs (I have become accustomed and familiar
with them), as well as missing features. Yet, this heavily-customised
machine would require too much work to upgrade and then restore to its
previous state. The gain does not entail benefits to make the upgrade
compelling enough. My machine at home is more open to experimentation, so
I needn't lag behind in terms of state-of-the-art Linux.
