    Hi! I've selected Ubuntu for my desktops (home network), but I'm still shopping for a Server OS (Ubuntu is still missing somewhat in that area).
    I would like to use Debian stable (when sarge hits the net), and I saw talks that they will introduce a fixed release cycle like Ubuntu (but 12-18 months).
    Can anyone confirm if there is already a decision on that? I dread installing something that is nog going to be updated another 3 years :)
    Thanx for any help)
