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.

Etch uses currently the 2.6.18 kernel (I believe it still had 2.6.17 late last year). Now, the product in the *buntu family that's comparable with Debian Etch (a stable Debian release) would be Ubuntu Dapper Drake (with "Long Term Support"), which uses the 2.6.15 kernel. So, Ubuntu's LTS release doesn't really support your latest hardware any better than Debian Etch.
