Even more so is it interesting that unstable is more stable than dapper -
supposed to be a release - soon.

Could you please name the programs you need that aren't in debian? For a
server? _That's_ interesting to me. And with all those cross side scripting
thingies lately (I also follow fd since a short while) I would rather not
name PHP now since I at least have the impression that this is the cause of
all these exploits(sorry, would look it up proper now but I have to go to bed,
please correct if I'm wrong).

If you netcraft a server and see that is has an uptime of 400 days and an
apache 1.3.23 running (not actual numbers) and 1.3.33 is current don't
assume that this is an old apache - debian folks have probably tended to that!
I would rather run sarge than any ubuntu on a server.

The ":)" indicates that this is a joke, right?

Uh, why not? The ubuntu folks just did a massive resync against that.
