New kernels, browsers, applications, desktop environments, etc. introduce new features, bug patches, security fixes, improvements (yes, and sometimes, regressions/bugs). It is normal human behavior to want the latest stable software releases from the "upstream" developers; I wouldn't go so far as to call these users "idiots."
It does however lead to some entertaining "square peg, round hole" moments when a new Ubuntu user suddenly realizes the implications of "Ubuntu is not rolling release."
