Do I find Fedora Linux Buggy Or Unstable?

The last Windows operating system I used is XP and although it isn't
buggy or unstable, security is far and wide atrocious. The first 15 
minutes of using XP, my personal computer PC is already infected by
malware and virus but as long as you don't connect to the Internet 
you're okay. That was 2001.

I have used Debian, Ubuntu and OpenSuse since 2007, hopping from
one distribution to the other as long as I can find a spare PC or laptop.
I really have settled on Fedora for personal taste and preferences. I
like GNOME and Fedora brings GNOME fresh to my PC. Of course it 
wasn't love at first sight a few releases back. Fedora's installer 
needed work and important repos like for the NVIDIA drivers and 
proprietary music and video codecs are difficult to enable. It wasn't 
for somebody who's just starting out his journey in Linux land. 

Since then, open source graphics drivers have changed the world for
me. I don't hunt for drivers nowadays. Printers and scanners seemed 
to work like magic when I connect to a LAN. I find it surprising that
co-workers who are using Macs and Windows laptops are unable to
detect printers when my laptop can. That's a marked switch of places.

No I don't find Fedora Linux unstable. If you need something that's 
more unchanging, you can try other distributions like Debian's stable 
channel. I like the way Fedora has changed my attitude towards 
system updates. Since using Fedora (starting with 20) every update
has made my system happier. i look to the next update like it's
breakfast. Yes I do it everyday. Now compare that to what Microsoft
is doing with the big Windows 10 update coming up.

Update Gnucash 2.6.16 --> 2.6.18

It's a long road to this update. It isn't a normal update at all. I had to manually compile goffice0.8 and webkitgtk as well as gnu...
