Debian and its clones Most mainstream distributions, like Ubuntu, Fedora, and Mandriva, have already adopted a time-based release schedule, meaning that releases are not done on a feature basis, but according to a pre-determined time schedule. The Debian project has announced that it has adopted a time-based release schedule too.

Do you really administer Corporate Linux Destops? That's awesome. Which distro do you use then? Red hat releases are pretty slow. As are Suse ( last I checked, has this changed?). Ubuntu seems to be the most regular releases of something that might be installed on a corporate desktop.

Yes. Since 1999. But things didn't really start picking up until 2004. That was "the year of the Linux desktop" in my professional world.

That's awesome.

Yes. It is. :-)

Which distro do you use then?

I've traditionally used a combination of Fedora and CentOS (RHEL, by any other name.) However, I recently finished migrating everything to Ubuntu. So far, my customers and I have been *much* happier with it.
