6 They are only rare because you aren't updating regularly.
8 If you want to run external kernel modules like nvidia-drivers or zfs,
9 stick to a longterm kernel. The ABI changes all the time, and so
10 there will frequently be stable kernel version changes that break
11 nvidia-drivers. Then there will be a lag before nvidia-drivers
12 supports the new stable kernel. In the meantime you can't run the
13 latest version, and that can mean security issues.
15 The longterm kernels rarely break nvidia-drivers and get all the
16 security and other fixes. They just don't get new features.
