Well we run debian because we want a stable platform, with security
updates only, and don't want to have the whole OS replaced every 6
months just because someone thinks it is too old.
Sometimes we update a specific package and it's dependancies by
rebuilding a package from testing or unstable, and test it ourselves and
if we are satisfied we roll it ot on the production systems that are
otherwise 'stable release'.
I think frequent changes are a good reason to avoid a system.
Fortunately our customers either agree or don't care what the back end
runs as long as it works 24 hours a day.
