    Thank you all that replied. Much obligied.

    We’ve already done the conversion of our in-office systems (well mostly), and I’ve been a personal convert since about the time RH 6.x botched my Linux experiences. I’ve been sold on Deb for ages.

    I was simply asked to give a 1-2 page document on why we chose Debian over other distributions (actually to show to other companies – one of our products requires a “server” and while we prefer using Deb, we will support other distros/platforms – one company asked why we chose Deb… hence the document), and while writing it couldn’t find too much in the way of resources, which is why I asked here, as I’m sure the readers of Debian Planet would come up with things I may not have thought of, and you did! *grin*

    Well, off to add to the document I’ve written so far. It’s starting to look like 3 pages now.
