My users demand too-new versions of things... I think if I left it up to them, they'd run unstable on the servers. Potato has too old versions of things to be of much use on a bunch of the servers. They have run woody for a few months now. I have to track security updates myself. I'd be very happy with a faster release schedule. The web work I admin for requires it. A year would be much better for a lot of people. > One of the > reasons I use Debian is that I don't have to expose the stability of my > systems to Microsoft like release cycles that most of the other Linux > distributions put their users through. That's a rather low blow. DeadPhat still does security updates for 6.2, for example.
