    Working as a sysadmin and also drifting my own servers on my own hardware at home. I have tested many different distributions, no one is as stable, fast, secure, reliable and configurable as Debian.I don’t see any reason to use anything else but Debian serverside. Debian works fine on Desktop too (although if you absolute must have the very latest software I guess Debian is not for you, but then you don’t care about things like stability either).

      “No one is as stable, fast, secure, reliable and configurable as Debian.”
      Do you find Debian overall performance faster than Gentoo? More configurable than, say, Arch Linux ?

      Is so, could you list some reasons that lead you to think so ?

      • Gabriel A. Cánepa says:

        You can’t even begin to compare Debian with Gentoo and Arch. While those are certainly two great distros, Debian 1) has been around since the very beginnings of Linux, 2) The number of available packages is without match in the Linux ecosystem, 3) Its well-tested release cycle ensures each stable version is rock-solid, 4) A beginner (as I was many years ago) can set up a Debian server without much hassle – you can’t do that with Arch. Those reasons (and I could go on and on and on) are why Canonical and other groups have chosen Debian to base their own distributions. A guess what? Those derivatives are also successful – greatly due to its rock-solid parent.
