I considered testing, which is what I run at home as my desktop
box, and dev box.. But I also noticed it patches alot, and I have had
things break, granted simple config changes fixed it =) but, its a hassel.

I'm running debian stable on a clients network, and it runs
great, thats the main reason I am leaning towards it.  But, like I
said I had to compile some stuff by hand..  Mainly sendmail.. we
were/are using a spam filter that required a newer version of sendmail for
it to work.  But other than that, it runs like a champ.

My main reason for posting the question was to see what else is out there,
maybe there is an option I don't know about (yet) =)

Thanks for the reply.
