Why I love Debian

Besides the massive amount of packages and architectures supported by Debian, I think one of my favourite capabilities of Debian in respect to many other distributions, is the possibility of doing a remote upgrade without issues. Today I dist-upgraded our server from Sarge+Backports to Etch in about an hour. Just a couple of small fixes were needed, but nothing specifically tied to Debian (a change in postfix 2.3 and a couple of home-grown scripts that were still looking for python2.3). ;)
