We have used Debian since the 0.93 days for our servers in the
department of computer science. We have a fairly large server
(cs.wcu.edu) for mail, web service, and file service to both
Lose 9x machines and Debian machines in a lab.
I use debian on my personal machines, unless someone pays me to use
"with debian, unstable = quite stable."

Debian GNU/Linux Because software support is free, timely,
useful, technically accurate, and friendly.
(I hope this is all of the above.)
