     Don't mind the sarcasm.  As much as you're frustrated, so are the
technically proficient people.  You're just receiving some spillover.
If "regular people" cared enough, then the technically proficient
people - especially the people who actually fix these problems - would
have a lot more support (and pressure on some vendors who make life
quite difficult for nonsensical reasons).

     I quite sympathize with you, re: release numbers. I was running
Ubuntu 12.4 LTS until quite recently, for just such reasons. I
upgraded to 13 a few weeks back, and now my laptop doesn't always
resume.  It seems frustrating and you wonder why you bother, but part
of that is due to human selective memory.  Linux works so well, so
much of the time, that it's a bigger letdown when it fails.  \
