Ok, but people that are going to care about whether Debian is in the
supported list for VMWare are most likely going to be willing to accept that
only the stable released version is supported.

I mean, I heard that most people use Debian instead of Red Hat, too, but I
guess that didn't keep them from certifying Red Hat. ;)

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
