Debian and its clones "The Debian project is pleased to announce the second update of its stable distribution Debian GNU/Linux 4.0. This update mainly adds corrections for security problems to the stable release, along with a few adjustment to serious problems. Please note that this update does not constitute a new version of Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 but only updates some of the packages included. There is no need to throw away 4.0 CDs or DVDs but only to update against ftp.debian.org after an installation, in order to incorporate those late changes. Those who frequently install updates from security.debian.org won't have to update many packages and most updates from security.debian.org are included in this update."

I recently had to switch my main Desktop back to XP ;)
Fortunately my home server box still runs good ol' Debian Etch. I installed it the day etch was released and it has remained stable ever since. Not once have I had to reset it for some nasty error. Setting everything up for NAT, Samba etc. went quite smoothly and transfering all of my files to the server's hard drive was a cinch. I typically stream music and movies to my Geexbox setup from my debian server too. I know I am only using a fraction of this OS's power but I like the fact that there is a lot of freedom to use it as I please.
