Debian and its clones "This is a critical review of Debian 3.0, but I want to say right from the start that I'm not trying to bait anyone. However I feel that reviewers often root for Debian as the open-source underdog, and give it marks which it doesn't deserve. If RedHat 8.0 came out with installation software like Debian 3.0 it would be savaged. I think it's time for an honest review, to spur the Debian developers into making the best possible distribution. I really want Debian to succeed. I want to use it daily, and recommend it to my friends. But I can't do that right now and I think it's important people understand why." Read the review and its (already long) discussion at DebianPlanet.

yes, debian has the latest software, it is in the experimental and testing branch. testing is just as stable as RH or mandrake or SUSE. infact, MOST debian users use Testing.

all you need to do is uncoment the testing source line in the apt config file. then do apt-get update && apt-get upgrade.

then you are running Testing with all the latest software.
