Stability is why I started using Linux a long long time ago. It IS =
important.

Digressing:=20
I've become the grumpy old skool Debian guy. I'll put Linux Mint =
w/Cinnamon on various desktops at work for normal people, partially =
because Phil likes and uses it, and I like it enough. If I put "plank" ( =
a small dock) on a bare clean machine with a terminal, firefox, chrome, =
vlc, gimp.. I can't tell if I'm on my Mac, or one of my Linux systems. =
For my desktop usage, it doesn't matter. On servers and devices: Debian =
except for a few odd VoIP things. In which case Ubuntu's been the only =
way I can get T38FAX to work well. Some bizarre dependencies. As I =
rebuild/upgrade some things at work, I think everything but the fax =
servers will go straight Debian. One of my reasons is Debian support for =
ARM. Both at ring-u and for some personal projects, got a few (< 1k =
though) ARM boxen running, It also seems to change less that whatever =
new kick Ubuntu is on this year.=20

If Debian means I gotta re-build/re-install servers every 2-3 years, =
that also means I have to make sure the code/systems stay maintainable =
and re-installable on new systems. Not always a bad thing. And as Dave =
Brockman reminded me/us: There is also an LTS support option..=20
