    I’ve found in my experience that my woody server doesn’t suffer from nearly the upgrade bugs that a lot of people run into when running Woody as a desktop box. Desktop machines have all the X, GNOME, and KDE dependencies to worry about…however, once you uninstall all of that, a lot of the complexity of upgrading is gone….and so much more disk space is available for being a server. 😉

    I disagree. I do lots of programming on my Linux desktop and I need up-to-date libraries that I know are tested and are not going to break. I just can not trust Woody for this, because libraries have broken, or they have moved only a library in and not the rest of the apps connected to it.

    I just can not explain to my boss that the reason why I am late on my project is that Debian Woody was messed up. Still though, I do try to use Debian whenever possible. Potato makes great servers.
