Debian and its clones Last September, some of the Debian Linux distribution's leadership wanted to make sure that Etch, the next version of Debian, arrived on its December 4th due date. Almost two months later, though, according to the February 17th Release Critical Bug Report memo to the Debian Developers Announcement list, there are still 541 release critical bugs.

Fedora, RHEL, OpenSuSE, Ubuntu, Mandrake, all have delayed a release. One week, two weeks, sometimes 2 months.
Debian simply does not know how to manage a release.
