New server: Sarge or Etch?
in the next few days I'll have to replace an old server running Debian
Sarge with a new machine, and I was wondering: maybe I should directly
install Etch on it, now that it almost reached its "stable" status?
I know I could install Sarge and then upgrade to Etch afterwards, but a
previous upgrade from Woody to Sarge was not totally successful, so I'd
prefer to avoid this, if possible.
It's a production server so stability is important, although it mostly
serves as a Samba PDC and file sharing machine, mailserver only for
internal (LAN) mail, and some other minor stuff (HTTP, Jabber...).
