The core of this idea is to stop making stable releases, and focus on the subset of our users who are happy using testing (or unstable).



See ReleaseProposals for alternatives.

Q: What other distro offers as much stability as Debian stable does? What distro will servers use?

A1: For me, it's down to Debian Stable or RHEL. I don't like Red Hat's way, debian is far easier to admin. If debian stable drops off, we'd probably move to Fedora Core, or Cent OS perhaps. RHEL is too expensive for us. In an enterprise situation, you need stability and predictability. 6-month upgrade cycles with mission-critical servers is NOT an option. -- DamianMurphy
