I have a box I use for pro linux audio only. For work, I use arch linux, but for the audio box, I want and need a stable system where I can focus on the audio and not the system, and also doesn't threaten my stability due to frequent updates.
That's why, some years ago, I installed elementary os 5.1 there. Beautiful, fast, easy and gets out of the way for the tasks I run that box for. I was always happy with it.
Until I recently bought a linux-supported audio software from u-he which only runs with glibc 2.28. While 5.1 runs with 2.27 only. And there is no upgrade path, not for those libs, nor the OS itself (e.g. from 5.1 to 6).
Now I have to reluctantly update the whole system. This is huge. I'll need to backup everything (which I do regularly but still, you know what this implies), and re-install a new OS from scratch.
I am of course considering elementary OS 6 again. However, I would like to avoid this same issue.
Will there be an upgrade path from 6. to 6.x and eventually 7 or whatever comes after? This will be important for me to take the right decision here.
