RE: High powered Debian advocacy?

1) Debian is about as far from being a Beta OS as you can get.
2) I am one of 2 sysadmins.  I need to convince my boss and co-worker
that Debian is the best option.

Why do you want to advocate running a beta OS on production systems? You
want your sysadmin to hate you?
