Hey, isn't Ubuntu Debian-based? ...
Ouch. I don't actually use Ubuntu, but when everybody on my local LUG list from the "Linux should be Windows but cheaper" newbies to former NetBSD developers is grouching about upgrade hell, I don't see any real benefits to be gained. You're still going to need to go with a "don't think about fixing what ain't broke, and even if it's just kinda broke, Just Say No to that upgrade dope" policy.
No, something has to be done about the "no upgrades" policy, or it's not worth switching from Debian stable.
