I find it funny actually. It's almost as if people need to convice themselves that Ubuntu is the right thing for them without ever experiencing complete stability first hand.

We all respect Slackware here, but:

1)This is a thread about Debian
2)Debian is at least as stable as Slackware

I will avoid mentioning that Debian is a lot easier to maintain.
