your running a server the latest is not always the greatest, debian
woody is a great server OS, as is. The developers are doing a great job
and I for one and happy they are not just trying to get the from version
3 to 4? .

stable? Were there any such release problems with the previous releases of
Debian? Is it desirable for me to keep at Debian if I don't get a relatively
