Debian and its clones eWeek has reviewed Debian 5.0, and concludes: "Version 5 of the Debian GNU/Linux open-source operating system offers the same top management tools and processor support that previous versions of the Linux operating system have. There also are a host of updates to open-source components, and the Linux distribution is still a great fit for servers and a solid desktop choice. However, the top reason for upgrading from version 4 may be the relatively short three-year security fix window, less than the coverage time offered with Ubuntu and Red Hat Enterprise Linux-derived CentOS."

Sometimes I would like a bit more up to date packages, but usually maybe one per machine so it aint that bad.

Debian does everything I need from an OS and more.

Maybe Debian really is the universal operating systen. :-)

Let me just add, what I need is usually in backports and easily added.
