Ventura … Maybe I‘ll update in late summer 2023. Apple should really follow the Linux distribution path and offer LTS versions. It is a pain in the a** to upgrade every year just for some stupid gimmicks.

What I need is a stable OS that runs my software - i do not need an OS that changes every month and adds some new features and bugs. When I take all the features of the last 5 years, the text recognition in photos is something I really like.
Did I forget something? All the rest is just bloatware, something people should install using the AppStore.

I don't like how the only way to check for updates is to Command Q the settings app and reopen General --> Software Updates. Otherwise it appears to not even check when you open and close Software Updates. :p
You can hit command + R to refresh.

Not for nothing, but Linux doesn't run off of an Ubuntu release cycle, let alone the multiple distributions of Linux. RHEL and CentOS certainly don't, Debian doesn't, Slackware never has, and Arch and Mint definitely don't.

Heh. Then Linux isn't the path for you, especially when you look at what it truly is: the kernel. In a period of 27 days, there were 7 releases of the Linux kernel, and that was just October alone. Oh; and that is the STABLE release branch.

Trust me (I'm a now 30 year long Linux sysadmin), MacOS is a hell of a lot more stable than what you think or are making it out to be.

Also, you can scan for and download the full installer from the command line.

Trigger a scan with:
% sudo softwareupdate --background

Then list the available installers with:
% softwareupdate --list-full-installers

Download 13.0.1 with:
% softwareupdate --fetch-full-installer --full-installer-version 13.0.1

Data shows that Apple supports N-2, meaning you can still run Big Sur and expect security fixes.
Apple recently acknowledged that in fact it does *not* fully patch security holes in N-1 and N-2 releases of macOS. The following is an excerpt from an Apple support document ('https://support.apple.com/guide/deployment/about-software-updates-depc4c80847a/') updated last month:


Because of dependency on architecture and system changes to any current version of macOS (for example, macOS 13), not all known security issues are addressed in previous versions (for example, macOS 12).
Howard Oakley and Joshua Long have written about this, see
https://eclecticlight.co/2022/11/06/last-week-on-my-mac-home-truths-about-macos/
and
https://www.intego.com/mac-security-blog/apples-poor-patching-policies-potentially-make-users-security-and-privacy-precarious/

The bottom line seems to be that in fact one can not run anything less than the current major version of macOS and expect a fully patched system.
