But how many of those 3000 bugs were A2 bugs, and not related
to new features or changes in A3 ?

That said, except for the memory issue there was for me
no reason to stay with A2. Of the 10 systems or so I used
in Parma all had A3 shortly after it was released, the
only exception being the 1/2 GB laptop. And that was used
for recording only, so using just a tiny fraction of the
available features. In that role it was (and still is)
quite stable.

and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
