ESR releases are more like "Debian Stable" .... I think it stands for
"Extended Support Release".  This is the sort thing that big business
might do and also what is used with Tails [The Amnesic Incognito Live

Normal releases push things via updates to more people, the masses.

There are typically different release "schedule" types, anyway, that's
enough for now.
