Debian and its clones Writing about Debian is not a simple thing. You know it's the giant that has spawned pretty much every other distro out there. It's almost like a Roman Empire, almost a taboo. Furthermore, it's not a desktop distro per se. It's more sort of a template you use to build your platform. It's also a SOHO server distro, therefore it more fits into the business category, comparable to CentOS and similar.

It's not because they release often it's because their ability to do online upgrades correctly and cleanly is almost nonexistent. Debian does online upgrades very well and doesn't require a reinstall no matter what the release cycle is.
