ETCH PARTY!

As of Monday, Debian's Etch edition is now labelled as stable. This means that the versions of all the software bundled with it won't change - They'll get security updates and bug fixes, but they won't get upgrades.. That makes it a nice unmoving target for installing on servers. I always use debian for servers because i know there will be patches. now... we need cake

Uh-oh... welcome to Backporting Hell. "What do you mean, you won't support version 2.x after five years? It's in Debian Stable and we will not upgrade!"
