My firm's equivalent of this was to never use a version *.0 of any vendors software...

    Likewise, turn off “automatic updates” (anywhere and everywhere you find them ...), and when advised that a new version of software is available ... wait.

    For instance, when iOS 4.0 came out for my phone, I waited several months as the version-numbers quickly bounced along.   When they finally settled down and stayed that way for more than 30 days running, I proceeded with one uneventful upgrade.

    Software’s difficult ... we all know that.   So, there is no reason to be “on the bleeding edge” about the bugs that will inevitably crop-up with a new release of anything.
