I was trying to subtly impress upon my sister how awesome Linux was, and she pointed out how I kept re-installing my linux distro “all the time”.
It’s true that, try as I might to just install some distro, and just contentedly use it (say for a good 2 years, which to me seems sensible), it always seems that about the 9-month mark, I just can’t stop myself from wanting to do a nuke and pave, because some new release came out for a distro that I’ve always sort of been wanting to have an excuse to try out. My inner geek cannot be restrained beyond the 9-month mark, it seems. The flood gates of Linux debauchery burst asunder.
Has this happened to anyone else out there?
How long does a Linux install last for you on average, before you completely re-install (on your daily driver machine)? Isn’t this kind of not cool, if it’s more frequent than you were intending? How long should an install last, by your reckoning, before a nuke and pave is necessary?
