My home server runs Ubuntu LTS. When I set it up, 16.04 was current and I delayed until late last year to upgrade to 18.04. I did such a bad job of it that I have no idea how it kept going. I didn't deactivate important repositories and my sources.list was still pointing to xenial. I've only just realised when I've run into problems trying to install new software. What a dummy.
Also, just listened to an episode of "Dead Pundits Society" where they talked about doing that exact thing with Das Kapital. Now, that's scary.
A lesson in patience. I've been using #debian stable but got sick of waiting for Firefox Quantum (and I tried using the snap but that had problems with fonts among other things). So decided less than a month ago to move over to testing. If course, now #Buster is released and I'm stuck between sticking with testing or moving back to stable. Not a mission-critical machine, so maybe easier to stay with testing.
