I don't think this is true, unless by "release" you mean "include in
the obsolete and of-historical-interest-only distros, testing and
stable respectively".  But the means that "ready to release" is often
a synonym for "no longer usable" for a personal workstation.

Red Hat's real weakness in this regard, I suspect, is that it is
enterprise-oriented.  If you can afford an enterprise-class system,
Red Hat will work for you.  ;-)
