I would agree with your assessment if I were running sardine. I would
expect frequent breakages and I would expect that I would have to figure
out the source of these on my own. However, I am only running the
"stable" repositories so far. So compare that to debian (on which this
thing is based): If I update the stable distribution and it breaks for a
lot of people, wouldn't you expect someone to upgrade/revert that
package? As simple apt-get upgrade should be expected by users who are
told this thing is debian based.

As for rd-mode: I haven't enabled it, so I guess i am still within the
reach of what you would expect of regular (power-)consumers. Heck, that
tableteer website even advertizes the additional programs from the
repositories, so I guess consumers are supposed to install and update stuff!

We are on the same side on this one :-)
