Why is everyone so upsessed with updates? Everybody is like "I need android L" and some people are even talking about what's after that
KitKat is a great operating system, so what's the big deal with updates? I mean every time an update comes out, like 20 or more percent of the people who get it, have tons of problems

Well... Google is still working hard to improve Android. Specifically, ICS/JB had Project Butter, Kit Kat had Project Svelte, and L rounds out the trio with Project Volta.
The reason why people are always after the next release is that Google has been implementing some major upgrades each step of the way. And L should follow that trend.
You're right, Kit Kat is a pretty good OS in its own right, but to paraphrase Chris Rock, the only thing better than old software is new software.

I enjoy a lot trying the new features, Find small changes. That said I agree with you that people is a little obsessed with upgrade. Os is not a common software, I'm very careful to upgrade it. If I have a stable system and don't really need any of the new features usually I don't upgrade. I use this reasoning both with desktop and mobile, and then I have a spare device to upgrade for fun without repercussions

First versions of Android were really slow, newer versions are faster. Also each big project has a huge count of errors and bugs, these errors and bugs can be fixed in newer versions. If you didn't saw them this does not mean there no bugs or some issues with security

Though, I will say this.... a lot of the "I want my update!!!" chatter often involves people raging about updates that would give them ZERO benefit... nothing new fixed, no new features, etc. They want a new version 'because update'. Perfect example 4.4.4... There are a fair number of phones on 4.4.2 right now and there's a fair amount of people whining about not getting 4.4.4... when, in reality, neither 4.4.3 or 4.4.4 (two minor, focused updates) would do all that much other than update their build numbers.

Now, point or full upgrades, THAT'S a different story.
