Hi Rudi

- lack of dolphin thumbnails, tooltips (pdf, libreoffice)
- plasmashell crashes frequently
- screen locker crashes (apparently won't be fixed until 422)
- alt-tab windows switching is slow/unresponsive.

For a server, I might consider going with Leap421, but the steady stream
of updates makes me a little uneasy.  Of course, it's also a good
thing, it just seems to be a little too much.

I run a test desktop machine, it's being updated weekly, I think.  I try
to do as much work as possible, to find more bugs, but I only manage
maybe an hour per day. 

It's really just my gut feeling, but for my office environment, I'm
sticking to 13.2 for a while yet.
