Question: Re: UTC is cool. Thinking to move my servers from Slackware to Debian stable or Ubuntu server to get all the apt-get goodness. What do you recommend, have you got any experience with any of them? Or something else...

    Yeah I'm pretty used to both Debian and Ubuntu. They are very straightforward, but upgrading them is often tricky (weird dependency failures that you have to google for workarounds). Since I mostly use VMs, when upgrading I'll usually do it on a spare clone of the VM so I can throw it away if I screw something up when upgrading.

    If you go Ubuntu, definitely do one of the LTS versions, if you like to avoid major upgrades.
