Einie Minie Miny Mo.... Stable Distro???
I know that this is a hard question as there is never a single answer as it often comes down to personal opinion. But I'm asking any way to get a idea of what people think.
I'm looking for the most stable distro that is still upd to date with everything and even has a bit of eye candy.
I've been a big Ubuntu user and have tended to stick to that side of linux as I like the amount of packages in their repositories. It has most of what I need.
However I'm willing to try something new if needed. Like many others, I went off Ubuntu when they introduced Unity. I just found it was too buggy and always getting random glitches in the GUI. (I know... but I like sticking to the distro's default DE)
I then went to the current Mint release but then it kept freezing up and I had to reboot the thing every time just to get it to work again.
I then tried debian, but it's missing to many things and while I could go old school and set things up that I need or do things manually, I want a system where I can just get on and use it.
I'm now back on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS untill I can decide where to go from here.
I know that one usually gives way to the other when talking about latest software as well as most stable. but surely there must be at least one Distro that has mastered this better than the rest? At least one distro that is more stable and still quite up to date?
