[vox] Upgrading Applications in Debian



I was doing some web surfing last night and saw an announcement that SuSE 9.3 
is coming out in mid-April.  It will have KDE 3.4 and Open Office 2.0.

That got me to wondering about Debian.  If a Debian user keeps using apt-get 
update, upgrade, and dist-upgrade, will he or she eventually go from KDE 3.3 
to 3.4, and from OO 1.1.2 to 2.0?  

If that's the case, then it seems to me that the non-geek simple desktop user 
has a very good reason to use Debian.

I'm not advocating that people use Debian, but just pointing out that there 
might be good reasons for non-technical users to think about it.  But I don't 
know the answer to the question I asked above.

Bob
