What planet are you living on?
Distribution upgrades on Linux - yes, Ubuntu manages to break a lot. Software package updates On Linux - no, RedHat(6 years of updates), SUSE(3years of updates) and Debians(Ubuntu 8.04 Server hasn't had any unplanned downtine due to botched updates) work perfectly well.

To my knowledge Windows Server 2003 and newer handle updates without issues.


If you don't count rebooting every tuesday to patch holes in iis and .net "issues" sure.. it works frikkin wonderful!
