@distrotube There are tools that let you downgrade packages, you can also use timeshift. But both of those have downsides, timeshift uses a lot of space and downgrading a package might not keep it downgraded for as long as you need it to be. Installing bedrock linux can also help, put that also introduces other problems.

@Haijo7 I'm aware of downgrading packages. But I had already edited the project in the NEWER version of Kdenlive. And Kdenlive often breaks backwards compatibility. I've downgraded Kdenlive in the past and couldn't open newer projects in the old version. So I didn't bother trying the downgrade. I probably should have downgraded just to be sure though.

@distrotube Hey, I just faced this at work today. Snap and an Ubuntu update knocked most of my workday productivity down. I just wish we were allowed to run Debian instead at work...

- startup snapshots with
- monthly full disk clones of a server to 2 harddisks

I use btw

@distrotube I switched to Debian Stable in late-2016 and have loved it. AppImages & Flatpaks makes things even better if I need the odd newer program such as #GNOMEBoxes, #Handbrake, #KeepassXC, etc. 👍 :debian:

@distrotube Instability? I once forgot how to turn my Linux box on. The power button blends in with part of the bezel and I was pressing the wrong side. I always reboot whenever there are updates so I've probably only ever used the physical button a handful of times.
