Another podcast from @DestinationLinux that is bashing @ubuntu for not being a rolling release.

I thought the point of the hwe stack was to backport the hardware stuff in the newer kernels back to the LTS.

Is that right @popey @Wimpy ?

CBC's political compass isn't all that helpful....

So when you're doing a fresh install of your favourite Linux distro (or *BSD), do you do anything extra in the install process beyond the norm?

e.g. on any of my ubuntu based desktops, I will install btrfs as the root filesystem. Actually I try to do that with all my desktop installs.

Man I like the Destination Linux podcast but man they are misinformed. No, doesnt need a rolling release to compete with Red Hat/Fedora and the new CentOS Stream. Total dribble last episode.
