Hmm, that's an interesting perspective. You're totally right about the LTS release schedule, and that's intentional. However, I'd argue that not adding extra features and breaking changes in between LTS releases makes Ubuntu more user friendly. Think about Windows 10. When's the last time we got a major UI revamp or breaking features? The best consumer OS's don't change drastically, so they can be learned and consistent. The more dynamically changing ones like elementary, Zorin, and Mint are aimed for users hungry for new features and awesome UI changes.

Just wanted to add, Windows releases breaking updates pretty often. It's probably at least every second large update (not major, just large).

Something I noticed with the windows update breaks is that it was almost always the newer functionality I poke around with and not the stuff that the bulk of their users would be using.
